Set a skillet to medium-high heat on the stove. Pour the olive oil into the skillet and then add 2 tablespoons of butter. Add onions, garlic and red pepper flakes, then stir. Let it saute for 4 minutes. In a bowl season your shrimp with salt and pepper and then add the shrimp to the skillet. Cook for an additional 4 minutes.
