Lemony Seafood Linguine

There's something about the smell of the ocean and fresh seafood that makes my heart happy. Yep, still down here at the Oregon Coast and loving every minute. I mean, just take a look at the view from last night. COME ON. Are you kidding me, Oregon?! All the heart eyes.

Anyhoo...seafood.


When I decided to spend some time at the coast, I had this vision of a seafood linguine in a lemony, buttery, garlicy, capery sauce. Seriously, I thought about it for daaaays leading up to my trip. In keeping with the seasonal seafood calendar, I bought fresh Oregon Bay Shrimp and Dungeness Crab. Two of my absolute faves.


And guys, let me tell you. This was the BOMB. It totally hit the spot. It was fresh, flavorful, and with a hint of red pepper flake, it had the right amount of heat.

Enjoy!
