  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound jumbo wild-caught shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  • Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet set over medium heat. When the butter is melted, add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Add the shrimp, wine, red pepper flakes and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until shrimp is pink and opaque.
  • Remove from heat. Add the lemon juice and parsley and toss to combine.
  • Serve warm with your favorite pasta, rice, or zucchini noodles.


  1. The white wine can be substituted with chicken or vegetable broth.
  2. I recommend using wild-caught, sustainably-harvested shrimp for this recipe.
  3. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two days or in the freezer for up to two months.
