  • While pasta cooks, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant and lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add shrimp and cook until tails start curling in, about 2 minutes per side. Add remaining butter, Pinot Grigio, lemon juice, half-and-half, and Parmesan cheese. Stir to incorporate.

  • Drain linguine and divide noodles between 2 bowls. Serve shrimp mixture on top and garnish with parsley.

Love this recipe. I have been making a similar dish for awhile and decided to try this one because I thought the addition of the half and half would be a good fit. I was right. I have to say that shrimp without garlic just is a letdown. I love garlic so I used a whole garlic and I marinated the shrimp in garlic powder as well. Added about a tablespoon of red pepper flakes as well as 2 tablespoons of paprika. I also used olive oil along with the butter and used my homemade blueberry wine because it was all I had on hand. This one is my new go to. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

This is quick meal I liked the concept of it but I would use heavy cream next time and add pepper. Read More

This is so good and so easy! I did liberally sprinkle the shrimp with Old Bay seasoning and let set for 1/2 hr. before cooking. Also added more garlic. Can’t thank you enough for posting this great recipe! It’s a keeper. Read More

I make this dish often usually when I'm runny late and need something quick for dinner. I always have pasta in the pantry and shrimp in the freezer. This dish is a snap to make. Read More

This was creamy and delicious! I used heavy cream instead of half and half and a pinch of oregano instead of parsley which I did not have. Read More

Made it pretty much as the recipe called for..... OK, OK, so we like more garlic in things! But we thought this was pretty good and we did enjoy it very much. However, we both decided that we prefer regular Shrimp Scampi (emphasis on the lemon/wine/butter marriage w/o the parm) to this. Will stick with the tried and true. Read More

This recipe was very good but I found that I needed to double the recipe if serving more than two people. I also would recommend putting in the pre-cooked shrimp last as mine were over cooked. It was very tasty and will make again. Read More
