Mediterranean Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta – shrimp in a sauce chock full of Mediterranean ingredients served over delicate angel hair pasta.

Seafood was just meant for summertime, don’t you think? Especially shrimp. So light. So delicious. Particularly when tossed with a little pasta and a luscious sauce.

A while ago, I was offered an opportunity to develop a recipe using a new product from Land O Lakes’, their Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt. I had seen this butter advertised in some of the food magazines and was already thinking of ways to use it so when the opportunity came up, I was ready to go!

I often use a combination of butter and olive oil in my cooking. Butter for flavor and oil to increase the cooking temperature. 

I knew that the olive oil would just naturally go with the Mediterranean ingredients that I wanted to use in this recipe and that the butter would add richness. This sauce with its combination of garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, lemon juice, and capers turned out great! Add some beautiful fresh shrimp and some pasta and you have a meal quick and easy enough for any weeknight.

How to Make Mediterranean Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta

Prepare the pasta in salted water according to the package directions.

Melting butter in a skillet.

While the pasta is cooking, in a large skillet over medium heat, melt the Land O Lakes Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt.

Cooking onion and garlic with butter in a skillet.

Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion has softened and begun to appear translucent, about 5-6 minutes. Cook slowly, taking care not to allow the onion and garlic to brown.

Adding tomatoes and other ingredients to the melted butter, onions, and garlic in a skillet.

Add the sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt, and capers. Cook for an additional 3 minutes.

Adding shrimp to sauce in the skillet.

Stir in the shrimp. Cover and cook until shrimp just turn pink – about 5 minutes.

Adding lemon juice and pasta cooking water to the sauce.

Stir in the lemon juice. Add approximately 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water to the sauce stirring it in a little at a time.

Drain the pasta, add it to the skillet and toss with the shrimp and sauce.

  1. I love shrimp and yes indeed it makes a fabulous summertime meal, either hot or cold. This is wonderful and looks so good! A wonderfully flavorful sauce but I love the surprising addition of sundried tomatoes.

  2. I’ve made similar dishes Lana…when I have fabulous shrimp (probably nothing as fabulous as you can get though) I love it simply prepared.

    Now I only wish I was close enough to make something for you in your current state; I’ll have to get all the details soon but in the meantime know I’m wishing you a speedy recovery!

  3. You might not believe this, but this was one of my son’s favorite pasta dishes when he was two years old! He absolutely loved the bold flavors – funny thing was he didn’t like regular pasta sauce but loved sun dried tomato pesto… I know, I know, he must take after his mother!! LOL!!

  4. Lana, this totally draws me in! Flavors sound wonderful and we will definitely be trying your recipe out! I’m not sure I’ve seen that butter in our stores yet, but will be looking today!

  5. That looks wonderful. I definitely see this in my future, along with a nice salad and some crusty bread. Good job on putting together the recipe in an easy format.
