Crispy Shrimp Pasta

The countdown begins....3 days till Disneyland with the 3Bs!!!!! We are going Wednesday for a fun girls day. It is my first time at Disneyland and I am going with two veterans who know all about the park. Can't wait to meet the Mouse!!

Crispy Shrimp Pasta
1/2 pound shrimp
2 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
 1 Tbsp butter
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 pound linguine
Remove shells and tails from shrimp.
Mix flour with salt and pepper. Coat shrimp in flour.
Melt butter and olive oil in pan.
When hot, add shrimp to pan. Cook for 2 mins on each side.
Meanwhile, cook pasta.
Remove shrimp and set aside. Add chicken broth and deglaze the pan, scraping brown bits off the bottom. Cook for 5 mins until reduced. Reduce heat and add cream to pan.
Whisk in Cajun seasoning.
Cook sauce for about 5 mins until it starts to thicken. If you want it to thicken more, you may need to sprinkle some flour into the sauce.
Drain pasta and add to sauce.
Serve pasta, topped with shrimp.
