  1. Soak shrimp in milk for 15 minutes. Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. Combine flour, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and cayenne in a medium bowl. Dredge the shrimp until well coated. Fry shrimp, along with the whole garlic in oil until shrimp are golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Add more oil if necessary.
  3. Remove cooked shrimp and set aside.
  4. Leave garlic in pan, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Add wine, and lemon juice to the garlic in the pan and bring to a boil. Let wine reduce by half. Add cream and bring back to a boil, lower heat and reduce by half again. Add basil and tomatoes. Cook for a few minutes to slightly soften tomatoes. Remove from heat. Sauce will thicken upon standing. Serve sauce over pasta and place shrimp on top.
