Shrimp Piccata with Rice Noodles

It's still hot in my neck of the woods, well, my little corner on the shore, and I'm tired of the heat.  But I wanted to  make a nice dish for Fish Friday Foodies using Shrimp, of course, for this month's theme of Fish and Seafood Pasta. 
This month's inspiration came from Caroline Williams at Caroline's Cooking .

I actually made some Shrimp Piccata a few years ago and had never shared the recipe. YIKES!

I decided that since I'd never shared how to make it here, it would be perfect for our Fish Friday Foodies event, especially if I paired it with some Roasted Garlic Fettucine.  But then the fettucine didn't turn out, so I went back into the pantry and found these.  Rice Noodles and went, hmmmm, I wonder how that will work.
It worked.

And umm, I had to do it, make Shrimp again for my Fish Friday Foodies offering.

This is the wine I used in the sauce.  Is that not a cool looking bottle?   The wine's pretty good too.

  4. This sounds good! I added lemon zest to my recipe this month too, I love how it brightens up the taste of dishes. And that bottle is great, it would sure make a great conversation piece while you drank the wine!

    1. Lemon zest is magical. I usually have some on hand in the freezer. Is that not the most amazing bottle? I'm saving it to use for something else. A local restaurant puts their special dressing in those wine bottles and it's a unique and fun thing to do.

  5. There is nothing more gratifying than a pantry that will allow you to make a last-minute find! And have it work! Good job. I'm on the bottle love train, too. P~
