Grandpa Leonard's Crabmeat Spaghetti Recipe

It's nearly Christmas.  Every year my wife's big Italian family gets together for dinner on Chrismas Eve.  It's always the same meal.  Grandpa's crabmeat pasta w/ shrimp.  Grandpa passed away a while back, but we've kept the tradition going and still work from his original recipe.   If you would like to share our tradition with your family here are the instructions: 

Using:   1 lb. pasta

¾ lb. shrimp

Preparation of Shrimp:

Raise edge of foil to form a pan to contain all juices.

Coat foil with Olive Oil.

Place shrimp on foil.

Cut about ¼ lb. butter into pats and place on shrimp.

Sprinkle shrimp with about ¼ cup white wine.

Sprinkle juice of ½ lemon over shrimp.

Sprinkle paprika over shrimp.

Sprinkle garlic powder over shrimp.

Do not broil shrimp until sauce is prepared.

Preparation of sauce:

Place ½ lb. butter in pan.
