Tasty videos are so popular in everyone's Facebook feed, that we wanted to give some of these recipes a try to see if they really are what they appear to be. In a previous installment, we shared a slow cooker apple crumble that was good, but not great. Today we are sharing a dinner recipe that my daughter Molly shared with me for this Lemon Paprika Shrimp and Pasta. You can find the original Tasty video and recipe here: http://bit.ly/lemonpaprikashrimp
This dish was super simple to make and it was good. However it was a bit on the spicy side and if you like that, great! But if you like it a bit milder, add less of the smoked paprika and add in regular paprika that will not be so spicy. I also thought the sauce was a bit on the thin side so at the end, in an attempt to not over cook my shrimp into eraserville, I added a bit of a cornstarch slurry to tighten up the sauce a bit. The sauce was still a bit on the thin side, but I was not going for a gravy consistency and just let it remain the way it was and it was easily soaked up into the pasta.
One of the other things I did differently was to not add the pasta to the pan because I did not want to have everything mashed together in case there was leftover pasta. So we served them separately. We enjoyed this and the next time I would make a few changes that would boost the flavor. Other than spicy, this was a little bland for my taste and feel like it may need a bit more flavor. That is the beauty of giving new things a try. They actually give birth to even more new things!
In the end, we had a great dinner and it spawned a few new ideas for future recipe ideas. We love shrimp, so anything with it, is going to be a great dinner anyway.
I hope you will check out this recipe and give it a try for yourself and see what you think!
