Preparation Instructions

Sauce: In a small bowl mix sauce ingredients and set aside for at least 1 hour before mixing into pasta, shrimp and veggies.

Shrimp: Thaw shrimp in cold water, takes about 20-30 minutes. After shrimp is thawed, remove shell from tails and rinse thoroughly.

Juice the lemon and set juice aside.

In a large pot bring 2 quarts of water to a boil, add salt and lemon rinds. Add shrimp and cook for 3 minutes... DO NOT OVER COOK SHRIMP.

Remove immediately and put in an ice bath to stop the cooking process for about 5 minute. Drain shrimp and put in a large mixing bowl, pour lemon juice over shrimp and mix thorough then set aside.

Pasta: Cook pasta for about 9 to 10 minutes (we like it a little soft), Drain.

FINAL STAGE: As pasta is cooking put olives, green onions, celery and avocado into a large bowl and mix. Once pasta is done add Shrimp to veggies and mix. ADD sauce and mix coating everything. Now add pasta and mix and coat all the pasta and you’re ready to serve.

I like this served warm, it can be served cold.

Yield: Serves 4-6 people.
