Ingredients

For the shrimp:
1 tablespoon soy sauce, sodium reduced
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon marsala wine
you can use any sweet wine you have
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
*
¼ teaspoon onion powder
*
¼ teaspoon hot chili peppers
green or red, you can increase the heat by adding more pepper
*
½ teaspoon ginger
ground
*
½ teaspoon -
shezhuan mix
*
¼ teaspoon salt
if you use regular soy sauce omit the salt
20 each shrimp
medium-sized
*
For the penne alfredo:
300 grams pasta, penne
200 millilitres heavy whipping cream
½ cup -
regato
*
½ cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup water
pasta boiling water
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
*
100 grams margarine
you can use butter, I always use margarine to save some calories

Directions

In a non-reactive bowl place all the ingredients of the marinade and mix well to be incorporated.

Add the shrimps and let them marinate for at least half an hour maximum one hour.

In a pan pour the marinade and place it in medium high heat.

Let it boil for a minute or two and then add the shrimps.

Cook for about two minutes, they do not need more, and remove from stove. By then the sauce would have thicken, looking like a caramel covering the shrimps.

While you make the shrimps, you can also boil the pasta according to your liking and reserve one cup of their water.

Just a small trick to reduce the time of the preparation of pasta. If you have a boiler for hot water, just fill it with water and it will be boiled in no time. Then pour the boiled water in the pot in high heat and the water will be ready for the pasta very quickly. This is what I do to save time when things are getting quite hectic around here!

Five minutes before the pasta is done, prepare the sauce Alfredo.

In a pan put the margarine or butter in medium high heat.

Add the heavy cream and the nutmeg and let it boil for a minute. Cook for about two minutes, they do not need more, and remove from stove. By then the sauce would have thicken, looking like a caramel covering the shrimps.
