Shrimp Durango

I needed a dish that didn’t have meat in it and was quick.  This is what I found on allrecipes.  I followed some of the advice in the reviews and added more cayenne, garlic & onions.  It came out great and was very easy!  Here is the original recipe.  (I doubled the sauce)

shrimp

INGREDIENTS: 
1 pound dry fettuccine pasta
3 tablespoons butter
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons lime juice 
3/4 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil, add fettuccine noodles and return water to boil. Cook until noodles are al dente. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat, add shrimp and cook about 3 minutes, until shrimp turn pink. Remove shrimp from heat and set aside.
  3. Pour wine and lime juice into the skillet used to cook the shrimp. Bring the mixture to a boil. Boil until the mixture is reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Return shrimp to skillet. Add cilantro, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper. Stir to heat the mixture through, about 2 minutes. Toss with pasta and serve.
