Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • pounds large shrimp (31-35 count), peeled and deveined

  • cup chopped shallots

  • Grated zest of 1 large lemon

  • 3

    tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2

    cups heavy cream

  • ¾

    cup canned reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 4

    teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary

  • 1

    pound dried fettuccine

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Rosemary sprigs, for garnish

Directions

Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until they turn opaque, about 2 minutes. Do not overcook the shrimp at this point, as they will cook more later. Transfer the shrimp to a plate.Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add the shallots and cook, stirring often, until softened. Add the lemon zest and juice -- the juice will immediately evaporate into a glaze. Stir in the heavy cream, broth and chopped rosemary. Bring to a boil and cook until the sauce has reduced to about 1¼ cups, 5 to 7 minutes. During the last minute, return the shrimp to the skillet. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the fettuccine and cook just until tender, about 9 minutes. Drain well. Return the fettuccine to the pot. Add the sauce and mix well. Serve hot in individual bowls, garnish with the rosemary sprigs.
