Spicy Shrimp Scampi

I love shrimp scampi - especially when it's spicy! I took this recipe from the Fisherman's Express website, and doubled some of the ingredients to make a larger amount. The recipe below is my changes. Click here to see the original recipe. I served it with Texas toast and sauteed fresh spinach.

Spicy Shrimp Scampi
24 jumbo Shrimp, peeled and deveined
6 Tbsp Olive Oil
4 Tbsp Lemon Juice
4 Tbsp White Wine
3 Tbsp minced Garlic
6 Tbsp unsalted Butter
1/2 Tbsp Red Pepper Flakes
Heat oil in a medium-sized skillet. Over medium heat, add the shrimp. Cook about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic, pepper flakes, lemon juice, wine and salt. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Uncover and stir in the butter. Remove from heat. Serve over pasta.
