  • 2 tablespoons butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 lb shrimp (not frozen, needs to be thawed)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 lemon (freshly squeezed)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (or you can use water)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz angel hair pasta


  • In a large pot of boiling water cook angel hair (or spaghetti) pasta according to directions.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Add shrimp, salt and pepper, garlic salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until the shrimp turns pink. About 2-4 minutes.
  • Stir in lemon juice and chicken broth (you can use water). Bring to a simmer.
  • Stir in fresh parsley and parmesan cheese.
  • Toss with angel hair pasta and garnish with more parmesan and parsley. Serve immediately.



Tip: Serve with a side vegetable like broccoli or green beans. I find when eating healthier if I pair my main course with a side vegetable it helps to make me feel full quicker.
