Shrimp In Garlic-Wine Sauce

I made this nearly a month ago for mine and John's ninth anniversary. It was good and I would make it again but served differently. I served it with small shell pasta, I think orzo would have been much better. I found the original recipe HERE. They recommend serving over risotto or orzo pasta. I will try one of their recommendations next time.

1 lb lg shrimp, peeled and de-veined
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp white wine
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a large skillet over med-hi heat. Add the red pepper flakes and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the garlic and continue cooking for about one more minute, should be quite fragrant.
Stir in the shrimp, wine, lemon juice and paprika. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally for four to six minutes or until shrimp are done. Sprinkle with parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Serve and enjoy!


  1. Mmmmm! What a great dish! Love the paprika to give this dish a bit of spice.

    1. We like things VERY spicy so the paprika was hardly noticed by us (just enough so that we knew it was there) but we also love garlic which really stood out in this dish.

  2. Oh, yum! Garlic, lemon, white wine...sounds perfect, Terry!
