How To Make Garlic Shrimp Scampi

This recipe takes NO TIME to fix. Eat your heart out 30 minute meals, this takes a total of 15 minutes! I sometimes have to think of what to cook for dinner for 15 – 30 minutes but on my way into work I knew we had colossal shrimp in the freezer. I made this dish over pasta which kept the dish simple, but created a full meal in one bowl. So if you haven’t cooked with colossal shrimp, here’s a recipe to break it in.

Let’s cook!

Garlic Shrimp Scampi


  • 20 colossal shrimp (I gotta have enough for my lunch tomorrow)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 box of hard pasta – start cooking this right away

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place shrimp in a single layer baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle with garlic, onion, parsley, butter salt and pepper.
  3. Pour wine over the shrimp.
  4. Turn on the broiler and place shrimp pan in, and broil for 4 minutes.
  5. Turn shrimp and cook for another 4 more minutes.
  6. Remove and let rest for 1 minute before you serve.

For tonight’s dinner I served the shrimp over spaghetti noodles with shaved parmessan cheese. The scampi was the sauce. Here is the plating.

This recipe will be very impressive if you are serving guests. Another note, make sure you have all your sides ready to serve, because you want to serve shrimp scampi within 5 minutes from removing from the broiler.

Tomorrow I will post our dinner experience from Vegas. The food was so amazing out there we kept forgetting to take pictures of the whole serving dishes, and had to take them after we had served our plates, but you will get the picture. We had sushi one night at Shibuya and then had a 4th of July 3 course feast at Craft House, which is a restaurant owned by the celebrity chef Tom Collichio.

Happy Cooking!
