Toss together the first six ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside. 

Meanwhile, boil a pot of water for the spaghetti; once the water boils add the pasta and cook according to package instrcutions.

Meanwhile, set a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. After a minute, add the butter to the pan and let it melt. Once the butter is melted add the garlic and sauté for 3 minutes, then add the salt and red pepper flakes and sauté for 1 more minute. Add the shrimp and cook until just opaque, about 7 minutes.
