Rinse and clean the shrimp. If you’re using frozen, defrost before using. Place in a medium bowl. Mix together the first 10 ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Measure ⅓ cup of the sauce and pour over shrimp. Marinate refrigerated for at least one hour. Reserve the remaining sauce.
Add the pasta to a large pot of boiling salted water and cook until al dente. Refer to package directions for the cooking time.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add marinated shrimp and sauté until just cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Add the reserved marinade and cook, stirring to combine, for about 5-8 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Drain the pasta, add it to the skillet and toss. Adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
To intensify the flavor grill the shrimp instead of sautéing them. Add more hot sauce if you like it super spicy.
You can use fresh or frozen shrimp for this recipe, just make sure to defrost the shrimp first.
Also keep in mind if you're using frozen cooked shrimp, you don't need to cook it at all. Marinate it and just add it to the sauce to heat it through. If you cook shrimp too long, it tends to get tough.
The sauce used to marinate the shrimp is super delicious and can be adjusted for spiciness.
Make sure to cook pasta al dente, then rinse it with cold water, drain it, and only then add it to the marinade. By doing so, you will preserve the pasta structure and prevent it from getting mushy in the sauce.
