Looking for easy and yet amazing dinner fixes? Then you are in the right place!



I have been making a lot of easy recipes,mostly those recipes that we have been eating for a long time but with easy steps. That's my effort for providing with some simple recipes.



Some of my recent recipes that are very easy to put together and great to satisfy the restaurant-style food cravings are:







I wanted some easy dinner fix like always and this was my easy and quick dinner fix and that too under 30 mins altogether.


This recipe cooks very fast so better keep all the ingredients mentioned handy near your kitchen table or the shrimp or butter might get browned(although no harm in browning butter or shrimp).





What is Shrimp Scampi?


Shrimp Scampi is a creamy delicious Shrimp / Prawns recipe made in butter/ oil combination with Parmesan and Italian Seasoning and served with Pasta.




What goes in Scampi Sauce?


The scampi sauce has Butter/ Oil combination, garlic, Parmesan, Italian Seasoning, lemon juice, chicken stock/ dry white wine.



Lot of grated Parmesan topped on easy Shrimp Scampi





How to cook faster meals / easy meals?



Here is what you can do to get easy dinner/lunch fix done in no time. 


Working simultaneously on different things at the same time cuts down a lot of time working in kitchen.




When you are prepping the dish,keep the pasta to cook,so that by the time you are done gathering all the ingredients for the final dish,you will have the pasta ready.



Finally cooking the dish and serving comes together in no time.




I mostly do a lot of multitasking in kitchen and that makes life easy as I can sort many dishes in few minutes.




Also,keeping the shrimp cleaned in the freezer helps to sort out this recipe further.




Store bought frozen shrimp will work fine but the taste of fresh shrimp which you store and use within few days give a great taste altogether and freshly cleaned shrimp will be more tastier.





How to make / Steps to make the Shrimp Scampi Pasta Recipe:


In a pan,saute the garlic in olive oil and when its slightly soft and cooked,add the shrimps.




Add the spices mentioned in the recipe and saute for few more mins.




Add the chicken stock or vegetable stock as per choice, and the let the shrimp cook.




Add butter to this and cook further for few more minutes.




Add the pasta and cook on low heat for a few seconds.




Switch off the heat,add the Parmesan and serve.





What are the Ingredients:



Shrimp I have used fresh Shrimp here in this recipe but you can use frozen pre-cleaned shrimp too. Use the small sized shrimp for this recipe .You can always go for medium / large shrimp too as they will be more juicier.



Italian Seasoning MixYou can go for store bought Italian Seasoning or use my homemade combination of Italian Seasoning mix. I have used a mix of  Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Garlic, Onion, Rosemary.



Parmesan:  The most important ingredient in this recipe which gives amazing flavor to the final dish.


Butter + Olive Oil : I have used a combination of butter and olive oil in this recipe.If you do not wish to use olive oil or butter entirely then just skip it instead use what you like,may be just vegetable oil or just plain olive oil or simply only butter.




Linguine / Angel Hair Pasta:  What pasta to be used in this recipe entirely upto you.Whatever pasta you have in your pantry you can use it.


Chicken Stock / Dry White Wine : The recipe that mostly used is using dry white wine but I have not used it instead I have used chicken stock. You can use vegetable stock too.

Easy Shrimp Scampi just like Red Lobster for dinner with lots of Parmesan and spices



What Wine to be used in this recipe?


As I don't have Wine nor my family I normally skip adding in any recipe that asks for it. Here I have used Chicken Stock and trust me this recipe is equally good.


So many people have tried this recipe and left their feedback on Pinterest.
Here is the Pinterest Pin to check that out!


But if you have Wine in your diet then you can go for Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio.



What to serve with Shrimp Scampi?


Fresh cooked Pasta as I have done in this recipe. I have served the Shrimp Scampi with freshly cooked Angel Hair.


You can serve along with Cheese Garlic Bread too. I have shared my recipe of cheese garlic bread.Do check that out.
