Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the shallot and cool until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 additional minute. Add the shrimp, 1/2 teaspoon red pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Sauté, stirring to coat with garlic, just until cooked through (both sides will be pink and opaque), about 3 minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside.
