What you will need:
3 garlic cloves
1/2 cup of white wine
1 pound Jumbo shrimp (uncooked)
1/2 stick of butter (salted)
3 Sprigs of Parsley
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1 Large Skillet or Frying Pan
Wine Recommendation: 4 Sisters Chardonnay ($13 - $15)
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
If you buy your shrimp cleaned that will save you a bunch of time, if not, you'll have to de-vein them. Either way you should also run the shrimp under cold water. Set to the side. Chop your garlic, either in thin slices or chopped in chunks, however you like it.
Ok, let's get cooking:
Line your pan with olive oil and set your stove to Medium heat. Once the olive oil gets hot, put your shrimp in. shrimp cook very quickly, so be sure to just get a pink color on each side. Once each side is a light pink color, take the shrimp out of the pan and put to the side. In that same pan, add in your garlic. Shaving the garlic is best for this dish.Now add in your butter, and your wine. Once this mixture comes to a simmer, add your shrimp back in. Turn up your heat to high for about 2 minutes, during that time, shake your pan in a "saute" motion, or continually stir. Once complete add in your red pepper flakes and tear up some of the parsley. Add to the pan. You are ready to serve.
Tip: Toss this dish with linguine, or serve it over a bed of rice. Either way it will be delicious.
