Spaghetti with Shrimp and Red Onion

This simple yet tasty spaghetti is always placed on the high priority in my quick-and-easy recipes collection (can be done in 30 minutes). As an Asian, I prefer this kind of cheese-free or low-cheese Italian food. It just seems to be lighter and healthier. The combination of shrimp and cooked red onion tastes so sweet and yummy.

Ingredients (for 2 servings):
1. 200 g Spaghetti
2. 12 jumbo shrimps
3. 1 medium red onion(around 400 g)
4. 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
5. Vegetable oil (or olive oil)
6. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1. Salt
2. Cooking Wine
3. Ground pepper
4. Parsley Flakes

1. Use a deep pot to boil water. Add spaghetti when water is boiling; add 1 teaspoon salt for seasoning and 1 tablespoon oil to prevent spaghetti stick together. Boil the spaghetti at medium high heat for about 15 minutes or until the spaghetti is getting tender. Drain the spaghetti and set aside (1 teaspoon olive can be mixed with spaghetti before the sauce is ready)
2. While boiling the spaghetti, have the shrimp peeled and deveined, slice the shrimp open on the back. Season the shrimp with dash of salt and 1 teaspoon of wine.
3. Cut red onion into thin strings.

4. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in pan, add chopped garlic, stir-fry until fragrant. Add shrimp, stir-fry until the color changed. Remove the shrimp.
5. Heat 2 tablespoons oil; add red onion and salt stir-fry until it turns translucent. Add shrimp and mix well, Season with ground pepper and parsley flakes. Before it gets ready, add butter and stir-fry until the butter melts, mix well. Remove; pour over the spaghetti and mix well to serve.
