Texas-Style Shrimp Scampi June Recipe


Looking for a meal that’s Spring-Time light, yet satisfying? Here’s a twist on a nice Shrimp Scampi recipe. The avocado and scampi butter makes this a very special and flavorful entrée. Bon Appetit!


Texas Style Shrimp Scampi





  • Scampi Butter, recipe follows.
  • 1 pound raw peeled and deveined 16 to 20 count shrimp with tail on.
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2 ounces Asiago cheese, cut into small chunks.
  • 1 avocado, large diced
  • Cooked linguine pasta
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

Scampi Butter


  • 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 in the pan.
  • Sizzle with the white wine and cook until shrimp are opaque, only about another 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the remaining scampi butter, Asiago cheese, and avocado chunks.
  • Serve over cooked linguine pasta and garnish with fresh parsley.

Scampi Butter

  • Using a medium bowl, whisk together all Scampi Butter ingredients until well blended.


Wine Pairing

I love a crisp refreshing dry wine for this dish and there’s nothing better than Sandy Road Vineyards Sangiovese Rosé. The light fruity nuances of the wine combined with the richness of the scampi will make your guests wanting more (or at least, the recipe!).
