Shrimp Scampi

The white wine provides a symphony of sweetness that combines well with the shrimp. Alcohol content does reduce when cooking. But, if you do have concerns, use white grape juice with a squeeze of lemon as a substitute.

Also, fiery red pepper flakes add heat to the scampi. However, if you and your family prefer tear-watering spices, add more.
