  • 2 tablespoons Canola or Vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons Unsalted butter divided in half
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 ¼ pound large or jumbo uncooked Shrimp peeled and deveined, tails on or off
  • 1 cup dry white wine or Chicken Broth

  • 1/8 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Melt oil and 2 tablespoons butter together over medium-high heat.
  • Cook garlic until fragrant, about 30-60 seconds.
  • Add shrimp. Cook 1-2 minutes per side (until shrimp is pink)
  • Immediately pour in white wine or broth, lemon juice and red pepper flakes.
  • Cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Shrimp will be opaque and light pink/white and wine should have reduced by half (or almost half). Don’t overcook shrimp.
