Bay Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta
Preparation time is fifteen to twenty minutes. Popular for a dinner party when you don’t want to spend all of your time in the kitchen. Serve with a mixed green salad and garlic bread. Serves four. 

1 cup cooked bay shrimp or lump crab meat (such as Dungeness)
One to two cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs. Parsley, minced
Two tablespoons olive oil or a mix of olive oil and butter
1 teaspoon or more of liquid hot sauce
Course-grind black pepper
1 tbs. Capers, rinsed and drained (optional)
Lemon wedges

Angel hair pasta (1/2 package or slightly more)

While you’re boiling the angel hair pasta (it should only take a few minutes), saute the garlic in olive oil or olive oil/butter blend. Add the bay shrimp or crab meat to heat.

Drain the angel hair, place in a large bowl, add the cooked shrimp or crab and drizzle on the hot sauce, add the minced parsley, a good dash of black pepper, and the capers. Toss gently. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
