Here's what you'll need:
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
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.
