Time and Temperature

Cooking shrimp at 55C/131F for 30 minutes is our favorite time and temperature. Cooking it for 30 minutes is the sweet spot for a tender, juicy shrimp. Also, cooking at a temperature of 131F results in firm shrimp with unbelievable texture. Just make sure you have a reliable sous vide that accurately regulates the temperature of the bath or your results may vary (check out the Anova or Joule).

Although this combination of time and temperature is our favorite, we recommend you explore different combinations to find your personal favorite. To try out other time and temperature options, check out our cooking guide here.

Sous Vide Shrimp

Preparing the Fettuccine Alfredo

  1. Heat a large pot of salted water until it is boiling. Add fettuccine and cook for 8-10 minutes, or al dente. Once pasta is cooked, drain water.

  2. In a large skillet, add garlic and butter and cook for one minute. Pour in half-and-half and stir to mix ingredients. Slowly mix in Parmesan cheese one tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly. Once all Parmesan is added, salt to taste. Keep stirring sauce frequently to ensure it does not boil, until it is thickened.

  3. Once alfredo sauce has thickened, add pasta and stir until fettuccine is coated with sauce evenly. Top pasta with shrimp, garnish with chopped parsley and enjoy!
