1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic smashed and diced
juice of half lemon

Melt butter with oil and steep garlic over low heat while preparing shrimp. Peel and devein shrimp and add shells to oil/butter to simmer for added flavor while deveining the shrimp. 

Remove shells from the pan, add shrimp and crushed red pepper and saute for a few minutes, just until shrimp becomes pink (do not overcook).  Turn off heat and add remaining ingredients. Season with hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
