Shrimp Scampi

This is a very simple, yet tasty Shrimp Scampi recipe.  Perfect for a quick meal and it even tasted great the next day.  I served this with a classic caesar salad, roasted asparagus and garlic parmesan biscuits.

1/8 cup olive oil
1 lb. frozen cooked large shrimp (run under cold water to thaw)
2 tsp. minced fresh garlic
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
5 TBSP. butter (unsalted)
3/4 lb. angel-hair pasta
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Bring salted water to a boil.  Cook pasta.  Meanwhile, in a heavy skillet heat oil until hot.  Saute garlic and red pepper flakes.  Add wine, salt and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, 1 minute.  Add shrimp.  Add butter, stirring until melted.  Remove from heat as soon as shrimp is warmed all the way through.  Serve over pasta.

Love it! Will try this on Friday. I also need some "summer" type recipes. It's already too hot to being using the stove.
