- 1 pound pasta
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon chile flakes
- 2 tablespoons white miso paste
- 1/2 pound medium shrimp (21 to 25), peeled, cleaned and tail on
- 1/8 cup parsley, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
2. While the pasta is cooking, in a large saute pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir occasionally until it turns lightly brown and smells nutty, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chile flakes and stir. Lower the heat and add miso paste. Whisk until fully incorporated into the butter, then add 1/4 cup of pasta water and whisk until fully incorporated. If more water is needed, add one tablespoon at a time. Toss in the shrimp and saute for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked and pink. Turn heat to low.
3. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauté pan with the miso mixture. Add another 1 tablespoon of the pasta water, if needed. Add the parsley, salt and pepper. Gently toss until the pasta is coated with the miso sauce and the shrimp is warm, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
