Vegetable oil
Kosher salt
3/4 pound linguine pasta
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 pound large shrimp (about 16)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Zest of 1/2 lemon
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 lemon, thinly sliced in half rounds
1/8 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes

Drizzle some oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add the linguine, and cook for 7-10 minutes or according to directions on the package. Meanwhile, in another large (12 inch) heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter and olive oil over med-low heat. Add the garlic, sauté for one minute be careful, the garlic burns easily. Add the shrimp, 1 teaspoon of salt, and the pepper and sauté until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat, add the parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon slices, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine. When pasta is done, drain the cooked linguine and then put back in the pot. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce, toss well, and serve.
