Skillet Pasta Shrimp Scampi - a one-pot, easy, 45-minute weeknight dinner, delicious and elegant enough for a dinner party!
Place shrimp in a medium-size bowl. Combine ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and 1 teaspoon sugar in a small bowl and stir. Sprinkle salt mixture over shrimp and toss to coat.
Reduce heat to very low. Add remaining tablespoon of oil, sliced garlic and red pepper flakes to pan. Stirring frequently, cook garlic until just beginning to turn golden, about 3-4 minutes. Add the wine, increase heat to medium-high and simmer, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan, until wine has pretty much evaporated, about 5 minutes.
