Everyone's Shrimp Scampi
cup extra virgin olive oil, or more as needed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 shallot, minced
1 1/2 pounds shrimp, 20 to 30 per pound, peeled, rinsed, and dried
1/4 cup fresh parsley, Yeah, I used the dried, (mine is withering in the heat we're having)
1/2 cup white wine
3 tablespoons butter
Chopped parsley for garnish
There should be enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
Add the shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes and cook until just golden, a few minutes.
Raise the heat slightly and cook until the shrimp are done, about 2 minutes more.
Stir in the butter 1 tablespoon at a time until each is incorporated before adding the next.
Pour over pasta if desired and garnish with parsley.
