  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the angel hair pasta, and cook until al dente, 2 to 3 minutes; drain.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, parsley, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and white wine. 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.
  3. Serve the scampi over a bed of angel hair pasta, and sprinkle with Asiago cheese and avocado to serve.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

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...

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...

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 par...

Delicious! The avocado really complements the shrimp. I've tossed out my old shrimp scampi recipe in favor of this one.

What an interesting twist on the shrimp scampi! Love it!!!

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 st...
