This classic Italian meal can be ready in minutes– bursting with flavor, this super simple entree is the perfect way to pamper yourself (and your family!) after a long day at the office, school and sports, or running errands– with practically no effort involved!

Quick and Easy Shrimp Scampi
1 pound large shrimp (approx. 16-20 shrimp; de-shelled and de-veined), tails on if desired for presentation
1 Tbsp fresh garlic, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp (flat leaf/Italian) parsley, minced
1/2 c white wine
1/2 tsp (crushed) red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp (fresh) lemon juice
Black pepper to taste

Heat a sauté pan over high heat/flame until quite hot. Reduce the heat to medium-high and carefully add the butter and olive oil. Once the butter has melted, allow it to cook until it begins to bubble, then foam. As soon as the foam subsides, add the fresh garlic and the crushed pepper flakes. Sauté for one minute, until the garlic becomes fragrant but has not yet begun to brown.

Add the shrimp to the sauté pan add the shrimp to the pan. Carefully add the white wine and stir to evenly coat the shrimp. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer in the pan and turn the heat up to the highest setting. Allow the wine to come to a rolling boil and cook for just 2-3 minutes or until shrimp become opaque.

Serve immediately over gluten free spaghetti or fettuccine.
