A delicious Lemon Fettuccine with Garlic Shrimps recipe. Light, easy, and perfect for the summer!



  • 600g Fettuccine
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 100g Baby Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Large Lemon (zest whole lemon, use only half the juice)
  • 1 Clove Garlic, diced
  • 500g Shrimps, peeled/tails removed
  • 1 cup Peas
  • Paprika, for seasoning
  • Basil, for seasoning
  • Salt, for seasoning
  • Black Pepper, for seasoning


  1. Season the shrimps with paprika, salt, and pepper. Let sit.
  2. Season boiling water with salt, and add the fettuccine to cook. Season with basil. Remove and drain once al dente.
  3. Boil the peas, and mix them into the pasta once cooked.
  4. While the fettuccine cooks, toss the diced garlic into a saucepan with ½ tbsp olive oil. Cook on a medium heat. Add the seasoned shrimps. Cook through, and mix into the drained fettuccine.
  5. Pour a good amount (about 3½ tbsp) of olive oil into a saucepan over very low heat with the zest and juice of one whole lemon. Grate the parmesan into the mixture. Mix together as the parmesan melts.
  6. Combine everything over a low heat for a minute or two allowing the pasta to absorb flavour.
