Place in the oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes until the shrimp are thoroughly cooked. Turn the oven to the broiler setting on high and cook until the breadcrumbs are crisp and brown about 1 to 2 minutes. Serve over pasta or with warm bread.

How do you know if scampi is cooked?

You will know the scampi is fully cooked when the shrimp are pink instead of translucent white or grey in color. The breadcrumbs will have browned and the sauce will have thickened. Check to make sure the scampi is done before removing it from the oven. If you need additional bake time, as ovens vary, please add as much time as needed keep a close eye on it as not to burn.

What do you serve with shrimp scampi?

Shrimp scampi can be served with freshly baked pasta such as linguine, thin spaghetti, or any pasta that you prefer. Garlic bread goes perfectly with shrimp scampi. You may also pair shrimp scampi with your favorite side dish such as oven roasted broccoli.

      Thank you! I’m not a fan of celebrating the holidays at a busy restaurant, it’s stressful and you spend so much time waiting. Plus you save money by making an evening at home.
