Shrimp Aglio e Olio in Cebuano kitchen

Cebu Food Blogger - This is my version of the famous Italian Pasta dish, the aglio e olio. This is one of the easiest to prepare with the simplest ingredients. However, it would require a bit of precision especially when sauteing garlic. Avoid burnt garlic on the pan. I also added sliced shrimps to give it some flavor.

If the spaghetti pasta is not available, we can use fettuccine, linguine, penne, rotini or even macaroni. Actually, any pasta we have at home will do. After all, we are making a very easy to cook Italian dish in our very Filipino home kitchen.

 My Shrimp aglio e olio

During the home quarantine period, I managed to have pasta as my meal at least once in a week. It makes me feel that I eat something new to my palate than eating a formal dish like with rice in my case. The aglio e olio dish is my excuse when I think I'm a bit lazy to cook a hearty meal at home. It is definitely my go-to quick pasta dish.
I also love cooking any Italian dish or a variety of pasta for that matter. Will showcase my Pesto pasta soonest. And for me, it is even the simplest of all. I'll blog about it soon.

Servings: 2

Preparation time: 20 minutes


A handful of Vegetarian Italian Spaghetti Pasta
6 pcs shrimps, sliced
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, squeezed
Pepper - ground
Chili flakes


Follow the instructions in cooking the spaghetti pasta. Around 12 to 15 minutes until al dente. 

Saute the garlic in butter.

Add the shrimps and season it with a pinch of salt and ground pepper.

Squeeze a half sliced lemon.

Add the shrimp toppings to the cooked pasta.

Drizzle it with extra virgin olive oil.

To give that extra kick, add some chili flakes and a squeeze of the remaining lemon.

Mix everything and get ready to eat.
