  • 4-6 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 5-6 scallions sliced
  • 1 cup parsley
  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup white wine


  • 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.
