NOTE:

  • I chose linguine as I prefer that type and fettuccine but you can use any type of pasta you like.
  • This recipe uses simple ingredients that all can be adjusted to your preference. There is no measurements for the cayenne pepper, Chinese seasoning and chili flakes as they can be added according to your taste preferences. 
  • The Chinese seasoning contains salt so no additional salt is required.
  • You can add more shrimp if you like but be sure to adjust the other ingredients accordingly if you do add more shrimp. 
  • The curry leaves used are TOTALLY optional. I have just been loving using curry leaves in almost everything I cook recently. If you don’t have them, don’t worry about it.
