Italy’s love affair with lemons dates back to Roman times, with it even being documented that the Romans believed lemons to be the antidote to all poisons. Although this may have been slightly wishful thinking, the Italians did find abundant (and more realistic) uses for the mighty lemon.
Linguine al limone is believed to originated on the Sorrento peninsula, an area particularly famous for its lemon produce. Like most Italian classic recipes, simplicity is key, allowing the flavors to take center stage.

INGREDIENTS (For 5 Portions):
-350g of linguine
-200g of shrimp
-1 lemon
-60g of pistachios
-1 garlic clove
-Evo olio as needed
