Lick-your-lips buttery, silky, slightly sweet, slightly nutty...this is my Easy Orange Brown Butter Shrimp Recipe! It's only 485 calories per serving and it's outrageously delicious! A little butter, when browned, goes a long way here. Mixed with fettuccine that's perfectly coated with the silky sauce, it's a perfect dish. #shrimprecipes #pastareceipes #seafoodrecipes #familydinner #dinnerideas
Make sure your shrimp are fully cleaned and rinsed under cold water. Keep in the fridge until ready to cook.
Thinly Slice the 2 scallions. Mince the garlic. Chop the parsley.
Cut the orange in half and cut 2 thin slices from half and then quarter those slices. Zest the other half of the orange, then juice both halves of the orange and set the juice, the zest, and slices aside. (or store in the fridge)
Boil a large pot of water for the pasta. Once the pasta water is boiling, add a splash of Olive Oil and a pinch of salt. Add the pasta and stir so that it all is immersed in the water and doesn't stick it itself. Boil the pasta until al dente.
Add flour to a wide bowl and season with salt and pepper. Dredge shrimp in the flour, then shake the excess flour off and add to the hot oiled pan.
Preheat large skillet on high heat. Add olive oil to the pan and spread it around to coat the bottom. Cook the shrimp on medium to high heat for 2-3 minutes, then flip each piece and cook for one more minute.
Add the juice from the orange, the orange zest, the orange slices, the butter, the minced garlic, scallions, 1 tbsp parsley, and the broth.
Cook for 1 minute in the sauce and then flip the shrimp and cook for one more minute until sauce starts to thicken. Add the cooked pasta directly from the pasta water and mix to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve and garnish with the remaining parsley.
