Adriatic Shrimp con Linguine

A few weeks ago my Mother-in-Law was cooking a delicious meal of shrimp and linguine called Kozice Repovi or literal translation: shrimp tails. I wanted to learn how to prepare an authentic Mediterranean meal so I asked her if I could help her. "Of course, you can help, she said." I was taking meticulous notes in between cleaning the shrimp, chopping onion and garlic all with the intent of making sure next time I prepared it on my own, it would be just as tasty.

Today I was in the mood for cooking shrimp so I went to the grocery store Tommy for all the necessary ingredients to prepare Kozice Repovi.

You will need these 11 ingredients (serves about 4 people...or ONE hungry husband)

1 lb shrimp (heads removed, leave shell on as it infuses your dish with a seafood aroma)
1 Tbsp Butter
1 medium onion chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
parsley, several stems chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup white wine
1 cup heavy cream (you can use sour cream)
1 pkg linguine ( there are many varieties, you can choose your own, I purchased spinach linguine)
Salt and Pepper
Parmesan cheese for garnish

Melt butter and saute onion, garlic and parsley for about 1 to 2 minutes.
Add shrimp and olive oil (you can add more if you think it is too dry). Cook for 10 minutes
then add wine, salt, pepper and cook about 1-2 minutes
Stir in heavy cream and cook for 2 minutes.
Add cooked linguine and serve immediately.
Add Parmesan cheese to taste.

I asked Nada, my Mother-in-law, "what do you think, is it good?" She said, "it turned out better than mine." Oh she is too kind! But I agree it turned out pretty yummy as the contents of the skillet vanished within minutes.

Be prepared to eat with your fingers as you enjoy the shrimp tails!
