This is probably my wife's favorite dish, so since Friday was her birthday, I knew I would be making this before I got the request.

Peel and devein 1-2 lbs of shrimp and toss it in a bag with a little EVOO, kosher salt and Paul Prudhomme's "Seafood Majic". Keep them in the fridge until ready to cook them.

Get the water going for a box of farfalle (bowtie) pasta. When the water gets boiling, drop in the pasta and you can usually get the everything else done cooking in the time it takes the pasta.

Melt one stick of butter, and add in 3-4 cloves minced garlic, and 1/4 C green onions. Saute until the garlic and onion is just fragrant

Complelety ignore wife's question on why I am taking pics of her birthday dinner. :blushing:

Add 1C cream, 1 Tbs Seafood Majic, 1 Tbs Cajun Seasonings, and 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper and bring to a boil.

After it comes to a boil remove it from the heat and add 3/4 C parmesan cheese and stir until melted

Keep the sauce off the heat and get to cooking the shrimp.

Don't cook the chit out of them.........shouldn't take more than about 3 minutes. The EVOO they were in with the spices will keep them from sticking. When they are pink, they are done.

Drain the pasta and put in a bowl, add the sauce and shrimp and mix it up to coat the pasta. Sprinkle crushed red pepper over the top and serve.

Those fresh herbs around the plate are a nice decorative touch.

I'm bringing this one back from the dead...sry
We tried this recipe last Sunday. Man was it excellent!
We had to sub Old Bay for the Majic, but it was still really great!
Got a deal on the shrimps too...$3.00/lb.
Thanks Joe!

When it comes to seafood, Old Bay IS MAGIG!:roflmaoha0::moon::thumbs up::smack:

I plan on trying this soon, and the Old Bay will NOT be a substitute!:moon:

Thanks for bringing this thread back to life so I would find it though!:wow::smack::woohoo:

I like Old Bay in crab cakes, and on occasion, on steamed scrimps. It is very characteristic of itself, but it is no an end all for me.:shrug:
