This is is actually cajun shrimp fettuccine alfredo because we’re going to be using some Cajun seasoning what you’re going to do first is get a pot you want fill it up with water and you’re going to place the pot over high heat okay, and we’re going to wait until the water come to a boil and then we’re going to add our fettuccine noodles meanwhile what we’re going to do is allow our shrimp to soak in some water. We want to thaw them out and we’re using uncooked deveined shrimp make sure that undercooked and make sure that they are devein. So let them sit in that water and thaw out and now that our water has come to a boil we’re going to add our fettuccine noodles and we’re going to boil you them for about 10 minutes.
2If you think about 10 minutes all right so press them down into the pot and we’re going to let them cook alright so we’re going to let them cook until that done it down what we’re going to do is we’re going to focus on our shrimp down at that thawed out and we’re going to remove the skin and we’re going to remove the tails now if you don’t have shrimp that are already deveined you are not going to only remove the skin in the tail but you’re going to remove the nasty stuff okay so here are my shrimp after removing the skin details and what we’re going to do is we’re going to add our seasoning what I like to use is some it’s garlic.
3I don’t use too much of that so use some bits garlic and we’re going to be using some Cajun seasoning and some black pepper and then we’re going to massage the seasonings and look at that it smells absolutely delicious and the reason why I don’t add salt because Cajun seasoning already has salt in it all right so that’s the way you want your shrimp to look well seasoned here’s our fettuccine gurus after 10 minutes what we’re going to do now is we’re going to go ahead and we’re gonna drain the water okay so drain the water and then sit your noodles aside now we’re going to focus on frying our shrimp okay and we’re not going to be cooking them for long.
4You want to get your skillet you want to place your skillet over high heat we are not going to be cooking these for very long time okay you want to cook these for a very short period of time so you want to place it over high heat then you’re going to add your margarine or your butter I like to use butter and we’re going to add half of shrimp at a time so don’t add all of them at once because you’re going to produce a lot of juice so just add half at a time so add half of your bachelor shrimp. Then you’re going to add your second half once these are done all right so you’re only going to fry them for a few seconds with each side say about 15 seconds or so on each side then you’re going to remove them and set them aside on the boat until later.
5It gives the shrimp a nice flavor if you don’t have Cajun seasoning you can use Old Bay seasoning but you will need salt if you use old guy so then we’re going to make our fredo sauce. This is personally my favorite part you’re going to get a pot you want to place a pot over low heat you want to add your margarine or butter and once it begins to melt you’re going to add your cream your whipping cream okay now you can use evaporated milk or a half-and-half if you want those are other options just in case you don’t have any whipping cream just want to let you guys know that and then we’re going to add our shredded Parmesan cheese and what we’re going to do is we’re going to stir this in.
6We’re gonna let it simmer. This is on low heat still gonna stir it really well alright it did after that we’re going to raise the heat to high heat we’re going to cook it for a little while on a high heat we don’t cook it ready long we don’t want the cream or milk to simmer down to low because we want the sauce to be on the runny side because it’s going to stiffen up when it cooled off okay what we’re going to do down that are our Fredo sauce is complete as we’re going to add our fettuccine noodles we’re going to add them to the pot of sauce and that’s another reason why you want your sauce to be on the running side because as I said when the air hits it like when you put in the refrigerator and save something later or when you just cut the fire off and it cools down it thickens up but the noodles in the shrimp absorb some of the sauce as well so you don’t want it to be dry.
7So we’re going to add our noodles and our shrimp and we’re going to fold the sauce thin look at that fettuccine Oh Fredo look at it ah now if you can’t eat shrimp because you’re allergic to seafood you can add broccoli or you can add chicken or you can add chicken and broccoli I eat it like that sometimes ooh look at that ah fraeno sauce ah look at the sauce, then we’re gonna plate it we’re gonna plate it but that look amazing I still have some in the fridge mother gonna get some now look at the sauce and I’m using a fork because it’s so hard to plate the noodles with a big plastic spoon but look at that guys this was really really good it’s amazing give this recipe a shot you were gonna love it this is Philly boy Jays version of fettuccine afraid of but look at that it as you can see is not as running now because the noodles absorb a lot of the sauce.
8We’re going to add our shrimp and just for those of you who may want to know if you are not using undercooked shrimp but you’re using shrimp that have already been cooked just make sure that you seasoned the shrimp but instead of frying them you just add them to the sauce in the noodles alright so just add them last you know gotta fry them or nothing like that just add the seasoning like we did here but add the shrimp last because you cannot cook or we cook rather already cooked shrimp because it’s going to come out really chewy and overcooked alright so if you’re using cooked shrimp that have already been cooked just add that last to the sauce in the noodles just folding it alright we want to add a little bit of parsley place for decoration purposes and look at that and instead of using parsley flakes sometime what I use is some scallions for decoration purposes can chop up its really really fine pieces and sprinkle down on top but this is really really good.
