So it has been awhile since I’ve made this dish and Toya made a request in the form of “You know what you haven’t made in a long time???”. And before she could even answer the question, somehow I knew she meant Shrimp a la Ryan, even though there’s plenty of other dishes I need to dust off the shelves again.  If you don’t have much time for dinner, this will definitely help as it is a quick dish. Ingredients needed are :

A pound or two of jumbo shrimp, (I used tiger shrimp from Sam’s)
Spaghetti noodles
1/3 to 1/2 bag of broccoli florets (I used frozen ones for this dish)
Green, red, orange, and yellow peppers, or any combination of your liking (chives also work well here)
Old Bay Seasoning
Cracked peppercorn
Garlic Powder
Alfredo Sauce
Malibu coconut rum

Wash your shrimp

De-vein and shell your shrimp

Cut the shrimp in halves

Start preparing your noodles, when they are halfway done, add frozen broccoli to the water and return to boil.

Cook on med-high with butter and a little olive oil until pink on bottom

Flip and cook till pink on the other side

Add peppers (these are previously chopped up fresh peppers then frozen)

The special ingredient.  Add Malibu to just “bathe” the shrimp, you don’t need to drown them.  Try to aim for a level of 1/3 the height of the shrimp

Add your seasoning here, stirring lightly. The amount depends on your personal taste.

The later in the cooking process you add the seasonings, the more likely they “stick” to the food as the alcohol forms a glue-like glaze while it cooks

When noodles are done, place noodles and broccoli on plate. With a spoon, lightly spread some Alfredo Sauce over the noodles. You don’t want to use too much here, just enough to give the noodles some “Ummph”.  I know you’re thinking Alfredo sauce and Malibu????  Trust me on this one.

Add shrimp to top of noodles and broccoli and any remaining “residuals”


Enjoy!
Overall, this meal should take about 20 minutes or less if  you’re boiling the noodles while you’re cooking the shrimp.
