Thaw the shrimp in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours before you'll cook them. When thawed, pour them into a strainer or colander so that you can drain any water. Then place them in a single layer onto a plate lined with a paper towel to soak up any additional moisture.
Boil the water and cook the linguine to almost 'al dente', just a minute or so before the minimum cooking time as instructed on the box.
Put butter and olive oil into a large skillet and heat on medium high.
Once butter has melted, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute. Add the shrimp, lemon juice, Old Bay Seasoning, and lemon zest. Cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 3-4 minutes. Add the parsley and stir well.
Add the linguine to the skillet and gently toss to coat completely.
