About the Recipe


2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup dry white wine or broth

¾ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste

⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste

Freshly ground black pepper

1¾ pounds large or extra-large shrimp, shelled

⅓ cup chopped parsley

Freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon

Cooked pasta or crusty bread


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

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 pasta or accompanied by crusty bread.
