How to Make Steak and Shrimp Pasta

Though Steak and Shrimp Pasta is a restaurant-level dish, anyone can do it, even if you don’t consider yourself a cook. Trust us. What you need is just pasta, shrimp, strip steak, and a little bit of inspiration.

So, here’s what you need for this extra special pasta.

Ingredients:

(2 servings)

For the pasta:

  • ½ lb linguine
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup white wine
  • ½ lb jumbo shrimp
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

Instructions:

The Steak and Shrimp Pasta recipe goes down to frying shrimp and steak, then cooking pasta and mixing it all. However, it has a little bit more than that.

There are a few steps to this recipe—but if you have all your ingredients chopped, organized, and ready, then the cooking of each step is speedy.

There are no hidden pitfalls or secret ingredients to this recipe. But, if you want to personalize it, you can add some Cajun seasoning for spicier pasta or remove the red pepper flakes for a milder version.

Ready to start cooking?

Step 1:

Cook the “backbone” of your Steak and Shrimp dish—the pasta. Boil some water in a large pot, add salt, and then your linguine. Cook for about 7 minutes for al dente pasta and drain it well.

Step 2:

While the pasta is cooking, you can prepare the shrimp. Add butter and olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat and garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook for one minute.

Step 3:

Add the peeled and deveined shrimp to the skillet and sprinkle some salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, frequently stirring, until the shrimp are cooked through and pink. Once cooked, remove them to a plate and set them aside.

Step 4:

Stir in some white wine and lemon juice. Cook for 1 minute, remove the skillet from the heat and add finely chopped parsley.

Then, add your linguine and shrimp to the skillet and toss so the pasta is nicely coated in the sauce.

Step 5:

Cook your steak. Sprinkle your steak with salt and pepper. Then heat a large cast iron pan over high heat, lightly brush the steak with oil, and place in a skillet when it is adequately heated.

Note: Seasoning your steak before cooking the pasta is even better.

Cook your steak for about 3-4 minutes on each side. If you have a meat thermometer, it should be around 135 degrees for medium rare and 140 for medium.

Step 6:

While the steak is cooking, mix the butter and garlic in a small bowl and use it to top your steak once it is done. Let it rest for about 5 minutes before slicing, always against the grain.

Step 7:

Split your linguine and shrimp between two bowls and top with the sliced steak. Sprinkle with some additionally chopped parsley, and enjoy. Your chef-like pasta is ready.

Ingredient Substitution

Steak and Shrimp Pasta calls for common ingredients. However, if you don’t have some of them on hand, we know what to use instead.

You can either opt for healthier alternatives or substitute some ingredients to suit your preferences.

Rice noodles

If you don’t have linguine on hand, you can substitute it with any pasta noodles. However, for a healthier meal, you can opt for rice noodles.

Although rice noodles don’t have as many nutrients as regular pasta, the benefit is that they don’t contain gluten, making them perfect for gluten-sensitive people.

The only thing to remember is that rice noodles require a close eye while cooking. But apart from that, you can freely substitute regular pasta with rice noodles.

Chicken broth

Chicken broth can be a flavorful replacement for a white wine that will add depth to the recipe, even though the flavors will change a bit.

You can swap it in equal amounts, but keep in mind that broth won’t add any acidity. So, you might need to add a touch of white vinegar for a similar tang. Besides, it would be best if you went for low-sodium broth unless you want to end up with pasta sauce that is too salty.

What to Serve with Steak and Shrimp Pasta

Steak and Shrimp Pasta is a pretty hearty meal as is. So, you might not want to serve it with anything except a nice white or red wine bottle. However, if you insist, there are still plenty of sides that work wonderfully with this pasta dish.

Here are some of our favorites.

Broccoli

For this quite filling pasta, you usually want to go for something simple yet tasty on the side. So, broccoli seems to be the best fit.

It is delicious, served as a side, and can be prepared using your favorite cooking method: boiling, steaming, or roasting, depending on how you enjoy it.

Broccoli is so tasty that it doesn’t require any sauce. You’re good to go by combining some thyme, lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic salt.

Lime rice

What about a little citrusy rice snap? Lime rice is a beautiful side dish for your Steak and Shrimp pasta since it adds some flavor, texture, and variety to the plate.

The acidity of the lime balances out the salt and butter in the shrimp and steak. And it takes no time to cook. Just cook the rice according to the instructions on the package and add some lime juice, salt, and pepper. Enjoy!

To make it even more complex, you can add some extra flavors of turmeric or cinnamon.

How to Reheat Steak and Shrimp Pasta

We would be surprised if you have some Steak and Shrimp Pasta left after you serve it since it’s finger-lickin’ good and usually blows anyone away.

However, if you still have some leftovers and want to enjoy them the next day, here’s how to reheat them.

Reheat Steak and Shrimp Pasta on a Stove

Skillet is an ideal method of reheating this dish. Place the shrimp, steak, and your pasta in a large skillet and heat over medium heat with a lid on. But don’t forget to add a splash of water to distribute the heat evenly.

Reheat your pasta for about 3-5 minutes on a stove.

Reheat Steak and Shrimp Pasta in an Oven

To reheat your Steak and Shrimp Pasta in an oven, preheat it to 275 °F. Place the leftover pasta in a lightly greased casserole dish. Add a splash of water and cover it with foil. Reheat for about 10-15 minutes.

Reheat Steak and Shrimp Pasta in a Microwave

Last but not least is the microwave; however, we don’t recommend using it to reheat your steak and shrimp pasta unless you have to.

Place the leftover pasta with steak and shrimp in a microwave-safe place. Splash some water over it and cover with a microwave-safe lid. Reheat for about 2 minutes until the dish is heated throughout.

How to Store Steak and Shrimp Pasta

As good as this pasta is, it is best enjoyed fresh, especially if we consider the shrimp and steak. However, it has to be adequately stored once cooked so you can enjoy it for the next 3-4 days or longer.

Store Steak and Shrimp Pasta in the Fridge

The important thing is that the ideal temperature for storing this Steak and Shrimp Pasta is 40 °F or less. So store it in an airtight container, and you’ll be good.

Store Steak and Shrimp Pasta in the Freezer

Have you heard anyone freezing cooked pasta? No? That’s because it is not an option. So, the only thing you can freeze in this case is the steak and shrimp. Just place them in separate airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags after you wrap them in aluminum foil.

It will help your steak and shrimp last about 2-3 months. But cook the pasta fresh once you feel like Shrimp and Steak Pasta, and prepare a new white wine and lemon juice sauce.
