Prep: Grate lemon zest from the first lemon then squeeze juice from both lemons. Drain artichoke hearts, cut into quarters and pat dry with papertowels.
Cook linguine in a large pot of water with 1 Tbsp salt (8-10 minutes) or according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking liquid then drain pasta (no need to rinse).
Meanwhile, In a large (12-14 inch) heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat, add 4 Tbsp butter and 3 Tbsp olive oil. Once butter is sizzling, add 4 pressed garlic cloves an stir 1 minute. Add shrimp in a single layer and sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Saute shrimp 1-2 minutes per side, just until pink and not translucent.
Add artichokes and toss to combine for another 2 minutes, or just until warmed through. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup chopped parsley, 1 tsp lemon zest, and 1/4 cup lemon juice.
Pour shrimp and artichokes over drained pasta and toss to combine. If juicier pasta is desired, drizzle with reserved cooking liquid from pasta (I added 1/2 cup pasta liquid).
