Breaded Shrimp in a Sea of Fusilli recipe
Make this an easy weeknight supper by using pre-made pasta sauce. If you want, you can even have the fishmonger prepare the shrimp for you while you finish your shopping. We leave the tails on this shrimp so that it holds its shape and looks great over the pasta.
Cook the pasta according to package directions. While the pasta cooks, clean and devein the shrimp but leave the tails on. Dip the shrimp into the egg and then breadcrumbs.
In a large skillet coated with Teflon™ nonstick coating, heat the oil and butter and add the shrimp, cooking over medium heat for about 4 minutes, or just until the shrimp is golden; don’t overcook.
Heat the pasta sauce in a small saucepan coated with Teflon™ nonstick coating. Serve the pasta with the shrimp on top and sprinkle with the parsley. Pass the grated cheese.
