How to make Pesto Shrimp Fettuccine in Mushroom Garlic Sauce

Step 1: In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat.

Step 2: In a mixing bowl, place the shrimp along with the seasoning mixture. Toss to coat the shrimp well. Once the oil is hot, add the shrimp to the pan and sear for about 2 to 3 minutes per side until the shrimp is pink and completely cooked, turning once midway. Set the cooked shrimp aside when done.

Step 3: In the same skillet, drizzle another 1 tbsp olive oil. Then, add the sliced mushrooms and season with 1/4 tsp salt. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes until the mushrooms have released the liquid and decreased in volume, and softened, stirring constantly.

Step 4: In the last few minutes of cooking the mushrooms, add the minced garlic. Pour in the wine and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 5: Return the cooked shrimp to the pan, then add the pesto. Toss well. Lastly, pour in the stock and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until the liquid has reduced.

Step 6: Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot with boiling water until al dente. When done, drain the pasta but do not rinse.

Step 7: To the skillet, add the pasta and toss well. Heat for another 2 minutes until warmed through.

Step 8: Ladle into serving plates and serve. If desired, season with extra salt and more red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
