Rigatoni with Lemon Herbed Shrimp

The Shrimp Shack Pasta was my favorite menu item at Bubba Gumps Shrimp Co. Since it was removed from the menu I have been trying to find a way to recreate it. I think I have finally come close, if you don’t enjoy shrimp it is easy to cut it out. When storing the leftovers I would recommend storing the shrimp and pasta separately.

Ingredients:

For shrimp:

  • 1.5 lb Fresh Shrimp
  • 1 Stick Butter
  • 4 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Packet Ranch Dressing

For pasta:

  • 1 Box Rigatoni
  • 2 C Broccoli Florets
  • 1 Yellow Squash (sliced)
  • 8 oz. Mushrooms (quartered)
  • 2 C. Olive Oil
  • 2 T. Butter
  • 3 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 T. Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  • 1 t. McCormick’s Montreal Chicken Seasoning
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (Sliced)
  • 1/2 C. Lemon Juice (plus 2 T. for steaming veggies)
  • 1/3 C. Italian Dressing
  • 1 C. Crumbled Feta Cheese

  • Place aluminum foil on a baking pan.
  • Cut your lemon into slices and place on bottom of the baking pan.
  • Melt 1 stick of butter and drizzle over the lemon.
  • Sprinkle your Italian seasoning over it and toss the shrimp to coat.
  • Place shrimp on top of the lemons & butter.
  • Sprinkle with minced garlic.
  • Put them in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked.

  1. Steam veggies in water and 2 T. lemon juice
  2. Cook pasta according to directions and toss in Italian Dressing
  3. Heat olive oil and butter in large pan.
