crispy shrimp pasta

I got this recipe from a blog that I follow and she made it look so good that I just had to try out my first shrimp cooking experience! This is her picture and you will see why I said she made it look good!! ;)

Now doesn't that look like the best meal EVER!!!!! :)
Here are the details:
4 oz fettuccine pasta
3/4 lb raw shrimp, peeled, deviened and tails removed
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
Cook pasta according to package directions. Sprinkle shrimp with salt, pepper, and toss to combine. Sprinkle 1 tbsp flour over the shrimp, and toss to coat the shrimp. Sprinkle 1 more tbsp flour and toss to evenly coat the shrimp. Melt butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When hot, add the shrimp in a single layer and cook on each side, flipping once, until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Remove to plate. Pour in the chicken broth. Cook for about 5 minutes, whisking the bottom of the pan to deglaze. Reduce heat to medium and pour in cream, whisking constantly. Cook sauce over medium heat until bubbly and the cream starts to thicken the mixture, about 5 minutes. Taste the sauce and add seasonings as desired (salt, pepper, cajun seasonings, etc.) Add the drained pasta and shrimp to the sauce, and stir to combine.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!! New favorite for sure!!!
