A classic seafood pasta with tons of flavor!

  • 1 water, purified
  • 1/2 lbs. Unknown (0)
  • 1 tbs. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 2 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes, crushed, organic
  • 2 garlic, fresh, organic
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest, from fresh, organic lemons
  • 1/2 lbs. shrimp, fresh, wild-caught
  • 1/4 c. wine, white, organic
  • 1 lemon, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 lbs. pasta, spelt, spaghetti, organic
  • 1 tbs. parsley, fresh, organic

Cook the fiddleheads in boiling water for 3 minutes, drain and set aside.

In a pan, heat the oil and melt the butter. Add the red pepper flakes, wild leeks, and preserved lemon peel and saute until fragrant (about 1 minute).

Add the cooked fiddleheads and the shrimp, and saute until the fiddleheads are bright green and the shrimp is cooked, about 1 to 3 minutes per side, and set aside.

Add the wine (if using) and the lemon zest and juice, and deglaze the pan. Simmer until the liquid is reduced by half (about 3 to 5 minutes).

Add the fiddlehead and shrimp mixture, the spelt linguini, and the parsley (if using). Toss to coat.
