Our extended family – whenever there is a birthday or holiday sends us gift cards ( which we love πŸ™‚ ) one gift card we have is to Red Lobster

So about 4 months ago Eric and I decided to have a little date night to our local Red Lobsters which I saw was near the mall we go to frequently ( I have a bath and body works addiction to feed) – we go to red lobster.Β  I need to rephrase that…. we made it to Red Lobster’s parking lot. Red Lobster’s itself was not open and had not been open for a while.

Sigh — Oregon has something against chain restaurants I love ( Cracker Barrel, TGI Friday’s, El Pollo Loco, Chili’s , etc) — long story short we had to go another restaurant for date night

And because I am getting more comfortable with cooking with seafood I thought I would take a stab at their Lobster Shrimp pasta — Eric ate it ALL and loved it. THOUGH he was like ” WHY DO YOU KEEP THE TAILS ON THE SHRIMP” – I know this is not an exact Copycat Red Lobster Shrimp Pasta since the tails are on — but I think it photographs better πŸ˜‰


One tip – if you want a SUPER creamy sauce ( which I love but Eric is not a huge fan) is adding 2 Tablespoons of cream cheese to the sauce

As you can see this recipe is very simple – I used clam juice but you can use chicken broth ( I had clam juice on hand)

My dad of course helped me make the dish – here he is deveining the shrimp πŸ™‚


This is one of my favorite pictures ever – LOVE the Oregon Plate
