Olive Garden Mediterranean Garlic Shrimp

Olive Garden Mediterranean Garlic Shrimp

l pound fettuccine
2 Tbsp butter
dash of salt
24 ounces peeled shrimp

1/2 cup olive oil
4 tbsp lemon juice
8 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
dashes old bay seasoning
dashes crushed red pepper
dashes parsley
1/2 cup Romano cheese
2 cups heavy cream

Cook the fettuccine in salted water with the butter until not quite al

Drain and set aside.

Combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add cooked
fettuccine and drained shrimp. Stir gently, over medium heat for about 10
minutes, or until seafood is cooked through and dish has a creamy
consistency. It may seem thin at this point but just wait. It will thicken

Great recipe!! When I made it all went exactly as the recipe indicated, except, for me, 10min cooking time for the sauce was way too long!! The cream started to separate… I don’t think I had the temperature up too high, but maybe I did?!? Ater about 5 minutes the shrimp was cooked and it had thickened!! Next time I’ll stop there…I used to have this dish at Olive Garden and LOVED it… I was upset when they removed it from their menu… Now I can cook it at home… Thanks!!

I wouldn’t add butter to the water to cook the fettuccine, maybe toss the cooked fettuccine with the butter before adding the sauce.
