Sponsored Post: This post is sponsored by Sweeet Heat, but the content and opinions expressed are all based on my genuine love for this brand and are my own. Thanks so much for supporting the brands I love.

When it comes to savory dishes, I can admit that I truly enjoy the creative process. Since I make a ton more sweets for Orchids + Sweet Tea, I really enjoy bringing my food recipes to life based on the vision and flavor profiles in my head.

This dish is no different. Much like these Sweet Heat BBQ Braised Rib Tacos, this pasta dish features a delicious spice seasoning from Sweet Heat! Their Savory Seafood Spice is absolutely a delicious kick to any seafood dish. As the site states, this seasoning combines the sweetness of brown sugar with the spicy succulence of paprika, fennel, turmeric, cumin, and oregano.

Since we’re on the topic of pasta—-I figured that you would really love this Creamy Lobster Spinach Linguine as well! With little heavy cream involved, the creaminess comes more so from the parmesan cheese that adds a nice kick of flavor. Who said seafood couldn’t work well with cheese? I definitely don’t concur! The star of this dish—the lobster, posses as the best kept little secret!

This Lobster recipe was fairly quick to make. You simply boil your lobster claws in a pot of water (seasoned with old bay seasoning because I love flavor, of course!) for about 25 minutes.

Once your claws are cooked, simply drain water and let them cool for a bit before cracking the shells and removing the meat. The steps that follow are simply for cooking the linguine and making the quick sauce. Wallah. That simple!

Not your traditional pasta dish—-This Healthy Veggie Vegan Lasagna Soup recipe is something truly spectacular. The warmth of great flavors and succulent taste of the soft lentil green lasagna pasta makes this bowl of goodness completely irresistible. Loaded with bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, and topped with a generous amount of vegan mozzarella cheese; this recipe reminds you of a good plate of homemade lasagna without the fork.

This Vegan Sweet Potato Pasta w/ Kale + Spinach is the perfect way to enjoy a good plate of creamy pasta much like the classic Alfredo version, without the dairy and cheese and of course with the amazing texture of Pappardelle noddles. This recipe is easy to make, light, bursting with ‘cheesy flavor’ from the use of nutritional yeast, dairy-free, and so healthy!

However, if you’re a lover of shrimp then I’ve got you covered also!

This Healthy Honey Garlic Shrimp + Broccoli is a great homemade option to amazing take-out flavors in one single bowl. Made in less than 30 minutes, this shrimp and broccoli is smothered in a sweet + slightly spicy honey garlic sauce, with hints of ginger, served with brown rice and topped with sesame seeds. Pure perfection!

This Spicy Cajun Shrimp, Kale + Cauliflower Rice recipe is the perfect meal for any day! Completely packed with bold, spicy cajun flavor, this recipe includes a tender “rice-like” cauliflower base and comes topped with colossal well-seasoned shrimp that will leave you having more than a few bites! One pot meal, completely easy, ready in 30 short minutes.

 

This Brown Butter Lobster, Shrimp, Crispy Kale + Wild Rice Bowl recipe is most certainly one that the family will love! Packed with great flavors, a bit of spiciness, and different textures, this recipe comes as a healthy alternative for all the seafood lovers. Topped over the healthiest rice to ever exist—wild rice, this bowl wins for the best in flavor for sure!

Last but not least—This Savory Cajun Shrimp Breakfast Bowl is just that—-SAVORY + full of flavor! Unlike any typical breakfast bowl, this recipe highlights a bit of spice from the cajun seasoning, sweet from the candied bacon, cheesiness from the creamy polenta, and bursts of other great flavors from the fried egg and greens. Just a complete bowl of goodness!

OK, so back to this seasoning—this blend is super affordable and a little definitely goes a long way (although I am one who heavily seasons my food so I delved into this stuff—Haha.). You can purchase it directly on the site using the link here.

The awesome thing about this company is that they also have All-Purpose Rubs and sauces.

OK, let’s dig right into this recipe—shall we?

Begin by cooking linguine pasta according to the directions of the packaging (about 8-11 minutes) and drain.

In the meantime, in a large skillet on medium-high heat, melt butter (2 Tbsps) and add the shrimp (ensuring that they are spread out evenly to cook thoroughly).

Cook shrimp on each side until bright pink, about 2-3 minutes each side. Once done, remove from the pan and set aside.

In the same skillet, add additional butter and melt. Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add in the heavy cream, lemon juice, parsley and stir until well combined.

Once sauce begins to lightly bubble, reduce heat to medium-low and add halved tomatoes. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes, until sauce thickens a bit.

Add shrimp to sauce and toss them in a bit so that seasoning and everything blends together.

Lastly, add pasta in with the sauce and shrimp and gently toss. Add in chicken stock and white wine and continue tossing until everything is well coated.

Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Sprinkle with shredded parmesan, if desired.

Bon Appetite!
