¼ cup butter
1 ½ teaspoons minced garlic
1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp
¼ cup chopped green onions
¼ cup dry white wine
⅓ cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shrimp, garlic, and green onions. Cook and stir until the shrimp are pink on the outside, and no longer translucent in the center, about 5 minutes. Set the shrimp aside, and pour in the wine, cream, tomatoes, basil, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the sauce will coat the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes.
Stir the shrimp back into the sauce, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat through and serve over angel hair pasta or with crusty bread.
