Chili Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta
By, Gail M

1 1/2-2 pounds of deveined shrimp, tails removed**
1 Tbsp butter
2 tsp of cumin
1 Tbsp honey
2-3 tsp of chili powder
2 cup +/- salsa (I used Pace Picante'- Medium)

1 box Angel hair pasta. Cooked and drained.

1. In a separate bowl, mix together the salsa, honey, 1/2 tsp. cumin and 1/2 tsp. chili powder and sit aside.

2. Melt the butter in a sauce pan, add the shrimp and 1/2 tsp. of cumin and 1/2 tsp. chili powder. Continue to saute on low to med heat until the shrimp is pink and hot. Once the pasta is done, drain and stir into the shrimp w/butter sauce- toss. Add the salsa mixture and toss.

** if you use the frozen shrimp that is already cooked, follow directions above on heat on low just to heat the shrimp and flavor.

I am wondering if this recipe would be good with chicken as my boyfriend is not a seafood person at all. What do you think?

Jen Newsham said...

Jen - The first time I made this recipe it was with chicken not shrimp, because my husband doesn't like seafood. It was great!
