Shrimp Linguine in a Tomato & Feta Sauce

Growing up in the Florida Keys make seafood my easiest favorite go to. Recently someone pointed out to me that seafood can be really tricky if you have never prepared it before. To me this just seemed mind-boggling, so I figured that I would share some fun seafood recipes that are a little on the easier side. (~At least I think so šŸ˜‰ ~)
