Momma Steed’s Shrimp Linguini

April 2, 2014

This linguini will blow your mind.

But if you aren’t a big fan of shrimp don’t leave just yet! 

I had a great friend in high school who LOVED this stuff…. and hates shrimp. In our high school yearbook, all the senior athletes were interviewed and one of the questions asked was, “What is your favorite food?” to which her response was, “Momma Steed’s Shrimp Linguini without the shrimp.”

True story.

Even if you don't like shrimp, don't blow this recipe off just yet. Replace the shrimp with chicken and you too can partake of this INCREDIBLE creamy dinner too! Not even a year after we got married, Mr. T. developed an allergy to seafood (SAD DAY).  So whenever I make this, I grill up a chicken breast for him, and cook up a handful of shrimp for myself. I whip up that creamy, delicious sauce and we each add our respective meats to our own dish. 

I am partial to the seafood because, well… I am obsessed with seafood. But I know there are a lot of people out there that want to run and hide at the very though of coming into contact with such a thing. So, just so ya’ll know, chicken is delicious in this meal as well! 

Just promise me one thing.

If you do decide to omit the shrimp, do not just title it “Momma Steed’s Linguini” on your recipe card. 

Your recipe card MUST read, “Momma Steed’s Shrimp Linguini without the shrimp.”

It’s a rule.
