Shrimp Pasta with Shitake Mushroom

Hi! I want to share with you the pasta recipe that we've been loving ever since we tried cooking it. It was inspired by a food we ate at a restaurant but that one has crispy salmon skin in it instead. So without further ado, here we go.

  • 6-8 pieces shrimp
  • 5-6 pieces dried shitake mushrooms
  • 120grams spaghetti noodles
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • fresh basil leaves 
  • parmesan cheese
  • olive oil
  • rock salt
  • whole black pepper
  1. Soak the shitake mushrooms in room temperature water.
  2. Peel and devein the shrimp. Set the shrimp heads aside.
  3. Boil the shrimp heads in water. Skim off the foam as the water comes to a boil.
  4. Cook the spaghetti noodles according to package instructions but using the shrimp stock we made earlier. This will give the noodles some ocean flavor.
  5. Chop the garlic.
  6. Grind the pepper and the rock salt together using mortar and pestle.. We like to use freshly ground pepper because we feel that it has stronger flavor than the ready-made ones that you can buy in the grocery stores.
  7. Pat dry the mushrooms with towel and slice it around 1/4-in. thick.
Cooking Instructions:
  1. In medium heat, heat the oil in the pan.
  2. Stir fry the garlic.
  3. Add in the mushrooms and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add in the shrimp and cook until it turns orange.
  5. Season with a little bit of salt and pepper.
  6. Add in the noodles and mix.
  7. Mix in the brown sugar, torn basil leaves, parmesan cheese.
  8. Add more salt and pepper according to taste.  
  9. Place in a serving plate.
  10. Sprinkle with more parmesan cheese, if you like!
Serves 1-2
