Slap Ya Mama Shrimp Pasta

Before I get to talking about the pasta, LOOK at these stone crab claws:

Aren’t they beautiful? Our local seafood market had tons of these today and I just had to get them. They were like lobster-crab claws. So good. If you have these available to you, GET THEM.

Anyways, the pasta. Of course, during our trip to the seafood market, I had to get the royal reds. By royal reds, I mean sweet baby Jesus shrimp that taste like lobster butter. So with these, I decided to make some pasta for dinner with super simple ingredients. And of course, some Slap Ya Mama spice. If you don’t have this available to you, I suggest using some cayenne pepper and garlic salt.
