Shrimp in a Garlic-Wine Sauce

This is a blast to make because it can be done in 15 minutes or so. (dishes clean even)
If the shrimp is frozen just put them in a ziploc and soak in water for 10 minutes.
This makes 1 serving.


8-10 shrimp, peeled and deviened
3 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp basil
1/2 cup white wine
2.5 oz fettuccine
1 tbsp butter


Start hot water boiling and drop pasta and set timer for 7 minutes.
Pour oil in a sauce pan and add garlic, basil and red pepper flakes, heat to medium. Once sizzling add shrimp. Cook 1 minute and flip, cook another minute. Pour wine in and cover for 1 minute while increasing the heat to med-high then remove shrimp.

Pouring in the cold wine over the shrimp will stop it from cooking too much.

Timer should have gone off by now so straight from the pot, transfer pasta to sauce pan, dripping heavily with pasta water. Add butter and increase heat, simmer to thicken the sauce. Add shrimp.
Pour on to plate or pasta bowl and shave on some asiago.
