Ingredients
  Large shrimp 2 Pound, peeled
  Garlic 10 Clove (50 gm)
  Finely chopped coriander 4 Tablespoon
  Red pepper flakes 1 Teaspoon
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 4 Tablespoon
  White wine 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Black pepper To Taste
  Lemon juice 1
  Pasta/Bread 5 Ounce
Directions

This is a great recipe and tastes great with pasta or bread.
Take a pot and pour water into it and a little salt. Place the pot on high flame and bring the water to boil. Once the water comes to boil, add in your pasta. Once the paste goes soft but not very tender, drain it out and run through cold water to prevent from further softening or tenderizing. Keep the paste aside for later use.
Prepare your ingredients to be used in the dish. Slice the cloves of garlic nicely and finely. Peel off the shrimp and wash it with water cleaning it thoroughly. Cut parsley.
Next take a sauce pan and place it on high heat. Add butter to the pan with olive oil. Next add the thinly sliced garlic to the butter and olive oil in the pan and sauté until nicely brown. Once this is done, add red pepper flakes to the sautéed garlic.
Take a cup of white wine and pour it in the pan with a pinch of salt and boil it at high heat for about 2 to 3 minutes. Next add the peeled shrimp to the pan cook for another 2-3 minutes turning them constantly. Make sure that the heat is high during the entire process. Next add chopped coriander and pepper and mix.
Take out the boiled pasta onto a serving plate and top it with shrimp scampi. Dish it up with parsley and serve right away.
