  2. 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel, divided
  4. 3/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  5. 1 1/3 cups Sauvignon Blanc or other non-oaky white wine

  12. Lemon wedges (for garnish)

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in small deep saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Add garlic, 3/4 teaspoon lemon peel, and crushed red pepper. Sauté until garlic is soft, about 3 minutes.
