The key in making a successful dish is time. Make sure that the pasta is cooked al dente; do not overcook the shrimps, and try to reduce the sauce for optimum flavor. I recommend you to follow the package instructions in cooking the linguine - some brands have different cooking time.

I used precooked shrimps for this recipe not because it is necessary, but rather of availability. Using packaged precooked shrimps also saves you time in cleaning-up. If you are fortunate enough to have fresh shrimps around, make sure to remove the shells and veins before cooking. Like squids and other seafood, shrimps tend to shrink when cooked longer than the usual. Make sure to cook your shrimps accordingly. For example, it will take about 3 to 4 minutes to cook medium shrimps while large ones takes 5 to 6 minutes.
