Ingredients

1 pound angel hair pasta

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 lemon, juiced, plus 1/2 lemon, zested

1/2 cup dry white wine

5 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup chopped parsley leaves

Directions

  1. Add the pasta to a large pot of boiling salted water, over medium heat, and cook until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. Once shimmering and hot, add the shrimp and saute until just cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove to a plate and reserve. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to the skillet, then saute for until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and white wine and raise the heat to high. Let the liquid reduce for 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in the butter, add a ladleful of the pasta cooking water and return the shrimp. Remove from the heat.
  3. Drain the pasta in a colander, and add it to the skillet along with the chopped parsley and toss. Add the lemon zest and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.
