Shrimp & Spice

Friday night I wanted to make something good dinner, but also something rather light. (I'm feeling the pressure of Vegas in one week)! So I decided a sautéed shrimp dish would be delish! Plus, Munchkin loves shrimp.

Niecy's Shrimp & Spice (and everything nice):

1lb of shrimp. (I buy frozen because deveining isn't my thing)
1tbs Olive Oil
1tbs Red Pepper Flakes (or just save the packets from your pizza deliveries and use a full one of those)
1tbs Minced Garlic
2tbs Dry White Wine (do yourself a favor and buy a cheap one used only for cooking. $3.99!)
Cherry tomatoes - halved (Really any sautéed veggies would be delish)
Whole wheat pasta or whatever you want to serve it on top of

Heat the olive oil on Medium.
Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes until fragrant.
Turn on high and add shrimp, wine, and tomatoes.
Cook for about 8 minutes, let your sauce get nice and bubbly, then lower the temp to thicken just a smidge.

Top on bed of pasta, rice, or grilled veggies!
