Once the mixture begins to bubble, increase the heat to medium-high, and stir in the shrimp. Cook and stir until the shrimp turn pink, and are no longer transparent in the center, about 5 minutes.

  • Serve the scampi over a bed of angel hair pasta, and sprinkle with Asiago cheese and avocado to serve.

I like a "wetter" dish but did not want all that butter. A good trick is to reserve some of the pasta water after cooking and add that in to final dish. This works great for a lot of pasta recipes. If the finished product is a little dry the pasta water works wonders wihtout adding more butter cream etc. Read More

I wasn't entirely pleased with this recipe. The sauce came out watery and I expected it to be thicker. The cheese was also a bit overpowering. The avocado was a nice touch but the shrimp didn't really retain the flavour of the sauce- that might have been because it was precooked though. Read More

This was an excellent and easy recipe for someone who has never made scampi before. It was easy to follow and came out delicious. My only remark is that when we added the wine we turned the heat up for a couple of minutes to high to cook out the alcohol and leave the flavor. We did this before adding the shrimp to avoid the shrimp absorbing the alcohol. We served it on a bed of spinach leaves to add some color and it was very presentable. It was also easy to half for 2 people (1/2 stick of butter 1 lemon squeezed dash of worshishire 1 teaspoon of the wine 1 tbs of fresh parsley 1/4 white onion). One note is no matter how strange it may sound the avocado is essential. It really adds to the dish and works wonderfully. I like tomatoes in my scampi so I added some but it did not work very well after all. Read More

One word - AWESOME! The 1 Tablespoon of salt has to be a typo I added 1 teaspoon and it was plenty. Didn't have any wine so I omitted that and used Parmesan cheese (freshly grated) instead of the Asiago. Super fast and easy to make. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! Read More

I know this is wrong for rating it although I changed the recipe to suit my taste. I did everything in the begining like the recipe stated. Where I changed it was I added cilantro instead of parsley and added tomatoes. IT gave it a totally different flavor but I prefered it that way. Read More

Really great Scampi!! I have been looking for a traditional shrimp scampi recipie and this is it. My wife said that is the best thing I have cooked for a while and since I retired I have been doing most of the cooking. I of course made a few changes. Two more cloves of garlic and 1/4 cup of white wine. I also cut the butter by 2/3ds and replaced it with olive oil. Really good!!! Read More

Loved it! I could not find asiago cheese so I added some parmesan and the avocados. I added about 1/8 cup wine but be sure to cook the sauce as called for so the shrimp will not take on the strong wine/lemon juice flavor. This makes a pretty presentation. It is simple but elegant. Will make again for sure! Read More
