    In the same skillet, over medium heat, add one more tablespoon of oil and then add the capers and fry until crispy. Then add the anchovies, garlic and chili flakes until fragrant.

  5. 5

    Add the pasta to the pot and then add the some of the reserved pasta water along with the remaining oil and lemon juice. Toss to coat everything well. Add the shrimp back to reheat and the parsley.
