Ingredients

For the Shrimp:

  • 2 lbs fresh or frozen shrimp any count, I used 16-20
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lemon for zest
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley minced
  • 2 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves 'minced' or 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Veggies:

  • 2 lbs fresh asparagus
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes skewered
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Pasta:

  • 1 box fettuccine pasta fresh or dried
  • 1 lemon for zest
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • pinch pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves minced
  • 1 cup water more if you like a runny sauce, and less if you prefer a drier sauce

Instructions

  • Prepare the BBQ or stovetop grill pan, and adjust the heat to medium high.
  • Mix all the shrimp ingredients and set aside.
  • Mix the veggies and set aside.
  • Start boiling the pasta according to the package instructions.
  • Place the shrimp and veggies on the grill. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes and then flip them to the other side. Let them cook for another 3 minutes and then turn off the heat and let them cool off gradually over the grill pan (or bbq) for about 1 minute before removing them to a serving plate.
  • In a small bowl whisk the pasta sauce ingredients (reserving the pasta water from the cooked pasta, and adding it only at the end when it’s time to toss the pasta with the sauce).
  • Remove the pasta from the boiling water and drain. Add the sauce ingredients over the pasta and gently stir adding the pasta water gradually until the sauce is as thick or runny as you prefer.
  • Assemble the plate and serve, enjoy :)
