Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 10


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 teaspoon plus more for seasoning salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • cracked black pepper
  • 2 lbs peeled and deveined large shrimp
  • 1 cup drained marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • pasta or crusty bread, for serving rice
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil and melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine, salt, red pepper flakes and black pepper, to taste, and bring to a simmer. Let the liquid reduce by half, about 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp and artichokes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are just pink, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the basil. Season with salt and serve over pasta, rice, or with crusty bread. Sprinkle with the cheese.
