Ingredients

  • 1 pound shrimp (if using frozen, unthaw)
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 pound pasta, cooked and ready to go

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in large skillet on medium heat
  • Add in the garlic. Saute until fragrant.
  • Add in the wine and let boil gently.
  • Stir in shrimp and heat through if using cooked shrimp (If using raw let cook until translucent-about 3 minutes).
  • Push shrimp aside and add flour to the liquid whisking with a fork --or, even better use a flour slurry.
  • Cook about a minute, until the sauce thick. Remove from heat.
  • Serve over cooked pasta with a bit of fresh parsley.

Notes

Note: to keep your sauce from getting lumpy it is best to create a flour slurry by mixing the flour with just enough water to make the mixture the texture of mashed potatoes. Whisk that into the sauce rather than simply adding flour in directly.
