Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  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.

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.

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.

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!
