Summer Linguine with Shrimp (or Langostinos) with Primo Lemon or Harissa Olive Oil

Primo Fused Lemon Olive Oil will add more of a citrus flavor. Primo Harissa Olive Oil will add more of a “heat/spicy” flavor.
Langostino is the Spanish word for prawn…there are several types of prawns…saltwater prawns are part of the lobster family…freshwater prawns are more similar to shrimp and look like a cross between a lobster and a shrimp. You can find these frozen at Costco and are an excellent substitute for shrimp.
