Anaheim Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta


Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 lb. raw peeled and de-veined 16-20 count shrimp with tail on (recommendation: tiger prawns! Delicious!)
  • 1 tbsp. white wine
  • 2 oz. Asiago cheese, cut into small chunks
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • Angel hair pasta, cooked
  • Fresh arugula, for garnish

Place 2/3 of the scampi butter in a large sauté pan over high heat and melt. Add in shrimp and cook for about 2 minutes, moving shrimp around the pan. Sizzle with the white wine and cook until shrimp are opaque, only about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining scampi butter, Asiago cheese and avocado chunks. Serve over hot angel hair pasta and garnish with fresh arugula.
