I recently made Anaheim scampi which before serving added avacado and asiago chunks. It was a nice addition!

Here is the recipe from the Betty Crocker site for Shrimp Scampi that got 4 and half star out of 5 and includes a how to video!

Shrimp Scampi

You Need:


1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
3/4
lb uncooked deveined peeled medium shrimp, thawed if frozen, tail shells removed
1
medium green onion, thinly sliced (1 tablespoon)
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
2
teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
2
teaspoons chopped fresh parsley or 3/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
1
tablespoon lemon juice
1/8
teaspoon salt
Grated Parmesan cheese, if desired

To Make:

In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add shrimp and remaining ingredients except cheese. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until shrimp are pink. (Do not overcook shrimp or they will become tough.) Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese.

Tips:

This succulent shrimp dish is good as is, and it's also delicious served over hot cooked rice or fettuccine.

Shrimp is very perishable. Store it uncooked in the refrigerator no longer than 1 to 2 days.

Cook the shrimp only 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Shrimp will turn pink when done.

Serves: 2
