To get started, combine minced garlic with olive oil and blend until smooth in your food processor fitted with a steel blade.
Add parsley and scallions and pulse just until the mixture is minced and looks about the consistency of a pesto.
Put in a medium bowl and toss with your shrimp, wine, salt and pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Mix well, cover and put in your refrigerator for about 30 minutes or so to let the flavors blend.
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.
Pour the shrimp mixture out onto a large baking sheet lined with foil and roast for about 10-15 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and your shrimp are pink and cooked through.
