Blackened Shrimp over Pasta

Blackening Seasoning:
1 TBSP smoked paprika
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Pepper, fresh ground
1/2 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 TBSP butter
3 cloves garlic
15 oz. can petite diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 lb. pasta
2 - 3 green onions
Fresh parsley
1 lemon

In a small bowl, combine the first 9 herbs and spices listed for the blackening seasoning.
Rinse the shrimp under cool water, drain, and then pat dry with a paper towel.
Sprinkle the blackening seasoning over the shrimp and stir to coat.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta.
Once boiling, add the pasta and cook according to directions. Reserve about 1 cup of the starchy pasta water before draining the pasta in a colander.
While the pasta is cooking, mince the garlic and add it to a large skillet with the butter.
Heat the butter and garlic over a medium flame until the butter starts to foam and sizzle.
Continue to sauté the garlic in the sizzling butter for about one minute.
Add the shrimp and sauté until they are opaque and slightly firm (3-5 minutes).
Remove shrimp from the skillet.
Add the diced tomatoes (with juices) and about 1/2 cup of the pasta water to the skillet.
Stir and cook over medium heat, dissolving the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
Let the sauce simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thickened slightly.
Taste the sauce and add salt if needed.
Add the cooked and drained pasta to the skillet and toss with the sauce (add some of the remaining reserved pasta water, if needed, to loosen the pasta).
Return the shrimp to the skillet and stir to combine.
Slice the green onions and chop the parsley leaves.
Sprinkle both over top.
Serve with sliced lemon to squeeze over top.
