If you are using fresh shrimp, clean them and remove the shells, leave them aside. In a pan melt butter and lemon rind on a low flame. Add the shrimp and cook, make sure they stay soft by not cooking for too long. Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water, drain once it is ‘al dente’ and keep some pasta water aside. Sauté the pasta in the pan with the sauce and shrimp by adding a few ladles of pasta water and mixing. Serve with some fresh parsley, poppy seeds and grated lemon rind

Your ‘pasta fresca’ with shrimp butter and lemon sauce is ready.

Buon Appetito!!
