DIRECTIONS FOR Southern Style Butter Beans Recipe PREPARATION:
Preheat a large skillet or pan over medium heat.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS - SPAGHETTI
In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Season the boiling water with salt and cook the thin spaghetti according to the package instructions until it's al dente. This typically takes about 8-10 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water before draining the spaghetti. Set aside.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS -SHRIMP
In the preheated skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter.
Add the large shrimp to the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and are no longer translucent. Once cooked, remove the shrimp from the skillet and set them aside.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS -GARLIC AND GREEN ONIONS
In the same skillet, add 2-3 tablespoons of minced fresh garlic and sauté for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Chop the green onions and add them to the skillet. Sauté for another 1-2 minutes until they are slightly tender.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS -SAUCE
Stir in 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce, 1/4 cup of low-sodium soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of chicken bouillon powder, 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil, and a pinch of red pepper flakes to the skillet. Mix well to combine.
Gradually add the reserved 1/2 cup of pasta water to the skillet and stir. Allow the sauce to simmer for about 2-3 minutes to thicken slightly.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS -SPAGHETTI AND SHRIMP
Add the cooked thin spaghetti to the skillet with the sauce. Toss the pasta to coat it evenly in the sauce.
Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet and gently combine them with the pasta. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat everything through.
Sprinkle about 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese over the dish. Toss the pasta and shrimp until the cheese is melted and the dish is well-coated.
Serve the Garlic Butter Shrimp and Spaghetti hot, garnished with extra Parmesan cheese and chopped green onions if desired.
