·         2 tablespoons olive oil, (30ml)
·         4 tablespoons unsalted butter, (60g, 2 ounces) divided
·         1/2 cup shallots, (67g) 1/8-inch dice
·         1 tablespoon minced garlic, (10g)
·         1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
·         1/3 cup lemon juice, (79ml)

1.   Combine shrimp with salt and pepper.

3.  Once butter is melted add shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Stir and cook until shallots are tender and garlic is fragrant but not browned, 2 minutes.
4.  Add shrimp to the pan in one layer, turn heat up to medium. Cook for 2 minutes, not moving the shrimp.
5.   Flip shrimp over and cook until just cooked through 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.

7.  Turn heat down to low and whisk in 3 tablespoons of butter to create a light thickened and emulsified sauce.
8.   Add cooked shrimp, tomatoes, and parsley. Stir and cook until shrimp is warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
9.  Garnish shrimp scampi with pepper and parsley. Serve with lemon wedges, crusty bread or pasta.
