Spicy Shrimp Alfredo Over Fettuccine

This recipe is very simple to make.  With the shrimp peeled and the ingredients layed out in advance, you can make the alfredo sauce in the time the pasta cooks.  Mince 1 Shallot.  Peel 1 1/2 Lbs Medium Shrimp (head on).  I think it netted around 22-25 shrimp.  I keep the tail on to help favor the sauce but you can remove all of the shell if you prefer.  Boil large pot of water for pasta.  Add 2 tsp Salt and 3/4 Lb Fettuccine to the boiling water.  Heat empty skillet over medium high heat.  Add 2 Tbls UnSalted Butter and the shallots.  Stir for about 1 minute til fragrant.  Add Shrimp and stir quickly to just begin the cooking process.  Dust with 1 Tbl Flour, keep stirring.  Reduce to medium heat.  Add 1/2 Cup Chicken Broth and stir for about 1 minute combining all the flavors. Add 1/2 Cup 1/2 & 1/2 stir about 30 seconds.  
Stir in 1 Tbls Barbeque Shrimp seasoning.  Stir 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese.  Drain Pasta when it's done.  Add pasta to a plate and top with Shrimp Alfredo.  Can garish with Parsley or Green Onion.  Serve with warm crusty bread.  I plated this and we ate it, all of it, so I don't have any pictures of the plates!
