In this easy to prepare meal tangy cherry tomatoes, succulent shrimp, and tender fettuccine are enrobed in flavorful garlic oil. Broiling the cherry tomatoes with the garlic brings out their natural sweetness, which provides a burst of flavor in every bite. We sous vide the shrimp for only 30 minutes and then finish them under the broiler to coax out even more flavor. We liked the wide, flat edges of the fettuccine to absorb the garlic oil, but any pasta will work.

4) Immediately after the cook, run fettuccine under warm water, separating any strands that have stuck together. Transfer to a large bowl.
5) Remove shrimp from packaging and transfer to a clean, dry Suvie pan; pat shrimp dry. Drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil over the tomatoes and 1 tbsp over the shrimp. Season both pans with salt. Return both pans to your Suvie and broil for 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through.
6) Add tomatoes and shrimp to the fettuccine, scraping liquid from pans into the bowl.
Stir to incorporate and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Divide between plates and serve.
