Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 lbs. large shrimp (peeled & deveined)
    1 Tbs. Olive Oil
    1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
    8 or 9 garlic cloves (minced)
    1 Basil Leaf
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/2 Cup dry white wine (penot grigio)
    2 Tbs. fresh parsley (minced)
    1/4 tsp. ground thyme


This recipe makes 4 servings

Heat oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add crushed red pepper, garlic and Basil. Saute for about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and salt and saute for about 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan. Add wine, parsley and thyme to the pan; bring to a boil and cook until reduced to about 1/4 cup. This should take about a minute. Return shrimp to the skillet and toss to coat. Discard the basil leaf.

I made rice with this dish. Since the rice was still cooking, I covered the skillet and let it sit on the stove. This gave the shrimp a chance to really soak up all the flavors.

  • This was good. I used a couple of sage leaves in place of the basil (only because that is what I had on hand). Would make it again - 11/16/08

  • Made this last night, with a little less garlic. It was delicious and the entire family enjoyed a lighter than usual meal - 8/20/08
