Fettuccine with Shrimp Recipe

Shrimp Fettuccine

According to reader Cherie, this is the World’s Best Shrimp and Fettuccine dish. She says that this is a favorite for dinner parties, that it is easy to make and impressive to serve. It does, indeed, sound like a winner, Cherie.

Chicken stock and white wine are a classic combination for seafood-based pastas. If you have fish stock or shrimp stock, substitute that. It’s very easy to make. Simply simmer fish bones and/or shrimp shells in water for two or three hours.
