Creole Shrimp and Spaghetti

I've been feeling like crud lately so I needed something quick and filling to make for dinner. Since Ron brought shrimp home last night I thought I'd try out this recipe I found on one of my favorite recipe sites, All Recipes.

I did some minor tweaks after reading the reviews and loved it. Very nice kick. Very yummy. Now I'm gonna have to play with it to make it a bit more calorie friendly. ;)

Creole Shrimp and Spaghetti

Modified from this recipe

12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoon Creole-style seasoning (use less if you dont like a kick to your food)
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
1 1/2 pounds fresh shrimp, shelled and deveined without tails
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

In a large skillet over medium heat, combine butter, Creole seasoning, black pepper, and teriyaki sauce. When butter is hot add the shrimp and simmer for 5 minutes or until shrimp are pink throughout.

Spoon the shrimp on top of the pasta and sprinkle each serving with Parmesan cheese.

That is a lot of butter and a lot of Parm (which is no good to me!). Still looks super-tasty, though!
