8 oz. spaghetti or linguine
8 oz. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 T. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. smoked paprika, or more, to taste
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 T. chopped fresh parsley leaves

1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. Thai sweet chili sauce
2 cloves garlic, pressed
Juice of 1/2 lime, or more, to taste
1 tsp. Sriracha, optional
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

To make the sauce, whisk together mayonnaise, Thai sweet chili sauce, garlic, lime juice, Sriracha and red pepper flakes; set aside. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

Place shrimp onto the prepared baking sheet. Add olive oil, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast just until pink, firm and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. (NOTE: you can also do this step on top of the stove.)

In a large bowl, combine pasta, shrimp and mayonnaise mixture. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley.
