Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic cloves and saute until golden, being careful not to burn. Remove garlic cloves from skillet and discard. Add tomatoes and season with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Season shrimp with remaining 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Add shrimp to skillet and sear 3 to 4 minutes. Increase heat to HIGH and stir in wine.
