Spicy Shrimp


One thing every girl needs is a meal she can make without a recipe.  I don't have one, however, this is my husband's memorized recipe.  It came from a cookbook I picked up from the clearance aisle at Barnes and Noble when we first started living together, and for one reason or another, it became his signature dish.

We learned early on that this meal needs to be served over pasta, typically spaghetti, and that we love the garlic sauce so much, that garlic bread is necessary as well.  It's a super quick meal that's ready in about the time it takes to make the pasta.

1lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4c your favorite oil
heaping of minced garlic
1/4t crushed red pepper
1/4c white wine

Mix the shrimp, oil, garlic, and red pepper in a medium bowl and marinate at least 15 minutes.  Cook in a large skillet over medium heat until shrimp curl and are pink.  Remove from pan, add white wine to deglaze pan over medium-low heat.  Pour over shrimp.

Serve with pasta and garlic bread.
