MINNEAPOLIS — If you like Italian food, there's a new neighborhood spot in downtown Minneapolis.
EaTo has food, a bottle shop, and a gift market.
The restaurant also has takeout and a patio for outdoor dining.
Chef Joan Mendez-Alvarez and Director of Operations Timmy McKenna joined KARE 11 News Saturday to talk about the new business and share a recipe.
- 8 oz linguini noodles
- 1 lb shrimp/peeled
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 4 garlic gloves-minced
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
- 1/3 cup fresh chopped parsley
- 1/8 tsp shallot
- 1/8 crushed red peeper
- 1 lemon-squeezed
Step 1: Pour 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a sauté pan on medium low heat and let heat up for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, season shrimp and put on grill to cook.
Step 2: Once oil is heated, add shallots, garlic, and chilli flakes. Cook 1 minute until garlic becomes fragrant.
Step 3: Add your white wine, season with salt, pepper and lemon juice and let reduce by half. This should take at least 5-7 minutes.
Step 4: Cook your linguine pasta in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Once done set aside.
Step 5: Once the wine has reduced, remove from heat. Add butter and stir to emulsify together. Add linguine pasta and cooked shrimp, garnish with Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. Serve.
