A delicious pasta recipe with simple ingredients and Mediterranean flavor. A plate that harmoniously combines with a glass of a White Dry 2017   by “Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades”.


  • 500gr spaghetti no. 6
  • 800gr shrimps
  • 2 lemons
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 bunch of basil
  • ground pepper and sea salt
  • olive oil
  • parmesan cheese


  1. Carefully peel the shrimps. Place the heads in a pot with 400ml water and a garlic clove and bring. Boil for approximately 15 minutes. Sieve the broth, pressing the heads well. Keep the broth hot.
  2. Boil the spaghetti in salted water for 9 minutes until ‘al dente’. In a pan, put 2-3 tablespoons of oil and 2 whole garlic cloves. Once the oil is hot enough, remove the garlic. Place the peeled shrimps in the warm pan and leave for 1-2 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper, a bit of lemon zest and the lemon juice.
  3. Remove the shrimps. In the same pan, place the pasta and increase the temperature. Add the broth you have prepared and mix gently.
  4. When the spaghetti absorbs all the broth, sprinkle with basil, some parmesan flakes, pepper and the remaining zest. Serve the pasta as soon as is still warm and accompany it with a glass of White Dry 2017 from “Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades”.
