  1. In a large bowl, combine shrimp, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon paprika, and 1 teaspoon salt. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water before draining.
  3. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, blend peppers, cream, and remaining 2 teaspoons paprika and 1 teaspoon salt until smooth.
  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add shallot and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden at the edges, 3 to 5 minutes. Add wine and scrape up any browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes more.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-low and add pepper mixture. Increase heat to medium and bring to a simmer. Add reserved shrimp in an even layer and cook, flipping once, until opaque, white, and slightly curled, about 3 minutes total.
  6. Remove skillet from heat and stir in cooked pasta, adding pasta water to loosen sauce if necessary.
