Step 1

Bring to a boil a large pot of water seasoned with 1 tablespoon of kosher salt, add the linguine, and cook until al dente, 7 to 10 minutes.
Drain, run under cool water, drain again, place the linguine back in the pot and toss 1 tablespoon olive oil. Set aside, keeping warm.
Melt the butter with the remaining olive oil in a 10” to 13” well seasoned cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 3 minutes, being careful not to burn.
Add the shrimp, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, and the pepper; sauté until the shrimp begin to turn pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and toss with red pepper flakes, parsley, lemon juice, and Parmesan cheese.
Pour the shrimp mixture over the cooked linguine, tossing to combine, and serve immediately.
