Tik Tok Dinner Inspo

Tik Tok could be leaving us soon – so naturally, I’m taking the liberty of spending as much time as possible in order to get the most of my time left with this app.

Okay, okay this may sound a tad bit dramatic but I’m telling you- Tik Tok has SO many hidden gems. There’s the musicians and artists getting attention and building their work, there’s cringey dancers and dancers that inspire others. There’s a level of connecting to others where you can find someone who is more heart broken, or drunk-o than you are.

My new favorite find though are recipes and DIY’s you can find and they are easy as can be. SO when I was on dinner duty last night I was lucky enough to see a tik tok meal that was easy and made with mostly what I already had at home. Of course I modified it to make it easier on myself (LOL) and what I already had in the cabinet after a long day at work.

The original dinner inspo I found from @jesspur on Tik Tok. Here’s how I modified it.

What you need:

Prep time + cook time: 15 minutes (add 5 minutes if cleaning fresh shrimp).

  • Shrimp
  • Garlic
  • Butter
  • Pasta (penne or Rigatoni)
  • Red Pepper flakes
  • Salt & pepper

What to do

Start boiling water (mhm, everyone’s FAV step–LOL)

Get a deep pan heating up with some butter, garlic, and olive oil, simmer then add shrimp. After this starts cookin’ add a little white wine (I used some cupcake moscato I had in the fridge). Season with salt/pepper and red pepper.

Cook up your pasta!

Seperate shrimp so you can take your cooked pasta and put it into the deep pan you cooked the shrimp in, get that pasta all in that garlic, buttery mixture that’s still in the pan. Add a little of your pasta water to this!

I moved the shrimp to a small skillet to get it a little more browned and crispy-ish. Added more red peppers (I like it spice-y!)

Mix all together, add LOTS of parm cheese and serve. YUM.
