Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, heat the butter and olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes (if using) and sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until they turn pink and opaque.
Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set them aside.
In the same skillet, pour in the white wine (or chicken broth) and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and let the liquid reduce for 2-3 minutes.
Add the shrimp back to the skillet and toss to coat with the sauce.
Add salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley.
Serve the shrimp scampi over cooked pasta or with crusty bread on the side.
