  2. Season the shrimp with salt in the meantime. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. 30 seconds to 1 minute after adding the garlic and red pepper flakes, cook until the garlic is just golden. Cook, stirring occasionally until the shrimp are pink and just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the shrimp to a serving plate. In a skillet, combine the wine and lemon juice and cook for 2 minutes, or until slightly reduced.

  3. Return the shrimp to the skillet, along with any juices from the plate, the linguine, butter, and 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water. Cook, tossing occasionally until the butter has melted and the shrimp is hot about 2 minutes. If necessary, add more of the reserved cooking water. Season with salt and pepper, then add the parsley. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
