  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • ¼ cup minced shallot

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste

  • 1 ½ pounds shrimp, shelled and deveined

  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 ½ cups cooked white rice

  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme for garnish (Optional)


  1. Combine olive oil and butter in a large, nonstick skillet and melt butter over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Pour in white wine and lemon juice. Season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes and mix to combine. Bring to a boil and cook for 4 minutes.

  3. Add shrimp and 4 sprigs thyme, and cook until shrimp just begin to change color, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove shrimp from cooking liquid, place on a plate, and set aside.

  4. Continue boiling the liquid until reduced by half, 3 to 5 minutes.

  5. Return shrimp to the skillet, remove thyme sprigs, and add parsley. Cook until shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 1 to 2 minutes.

  6. Serve shrimp and sauce over hot, fluffy rice. Garnish each plate with fresh thyme sprigs, if desired.
