Recipe Adapted from (Womanista – Bang Bang Shrimp and Pasta)
3/4 – 1 lb of thin spaghetti or angel hair pasta (or gluten free pasta)
1 1/2 lbs of medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 TBSP – coconut oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp Paprika
1 TBSP dried parsley
freshly ground black pepper to taste
For the sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise or light mayonnaise to lower calories (I’m a Hellman’s lover myself)
1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP of lime juice
1/8 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes
Mix the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. (You can warm this if you desire but it warmed up nicely for me when mixed with the hot pasta.)
In a large pot of boiling water, cook the pasta and drain well.
Place the uncooked shrimp in a medium sized bowl and add the paprika, 3 cloves of garlic, pepper
Heat the coconut oil on medium high heat and add the coated uncooked shrimp. Stir constantly while cooking until pink for approx. 7- 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and set aside if pasta is not ready
In a large serving bowl, combine the pasta, shrimp and sauce mixture and toss.
Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
