An Italian dish that combines butter, garlic and lemon that tantalize your taste buds! It's an easy recipe that you can make any day of the week AND impress someone at a dinner party. I paired this with the Vesper Martini made by my beloved Corey :) Follow the steps below and let me know what you think!


Here's what you'll need:


Ingredients:


3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

3/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth

1 TSP kosher salt, or to taste

1/2 TSP crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste

1 TSP black pepper

1.5 pounds large or extra-large shrimp, shelled or tails on

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon

Your fav cooked pasta


Directions:


Step 1: In a large bowl, rinse the shrimp with lukewarm water and set aside. Prepare your pasta according to the box directions and then set aside. NOTE: Be sure to chop all the ingredients before cooking because it goes quick!


Step 2: In a large skillet, melt butter with olive oil. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add wine or chicken broth, salt, red pepper flakes and plenty of black pepper and bring to a simmer. Let wine reduce by half, about 2 minutes.


Step 3: Add shrimp and sauté until they just turn pink, 2 to 4 minutes depending upon their size. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice and serve over your favorite pasta.
