  • 8 ounces spaghetti cooked
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2-3/4 pound shrimp peeled and deveined (about 20)
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup natural apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes slice in half
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • Kosher salt


  • Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shrimp in a single layer and season with a pinch of salt. Cook until shrimp is bright pink (no gray), turning every minute or so. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add onion to the pan and cook until onion starts to soften; about 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook for 2 more minutes. Stir often so the garlic doesn't burn.
  • Stir in apple juice, lemon juice, ½ teaspoon salt, oregano and red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer and add cherry tomatoes. Simmer about 3-5 minutes, stirring often.
  • Toss shrimp with the sauce, then the linguine. Sprinkle fresh grated Parmesan on top of the pasta and toss lightly. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve immediately.
