What to Serve/Pair with Your Shrimp Scampi

This Shrimp Scampi makes a great stand-alone dish.  If you are entertaining and want to serve it with an appetizer, try pairing it with these Cucumber and Dill Baguettes.  These are a light and refreshing finger food that your guests can enjoy while waiting on the shrimp scampi. You’ll also want to pair this meal with a dessert, of course. If you want to keep to the classics, pair it with this Easy Homemade Apple Pie. If you’re wanting something a little different, try these Key Lime Cookies.  Something about the lime flavor in these cookies just pairs so well with the shrimp scampi.  It definitely gives me a tropical feel!

  • If you don’t have linguine, feel free to use another type of pasta.  It would also be good with fettuccine or angel hair pasta.
  • If you can’t find large shrimp, you can use jumbo or even mini shrimp. Keep in mind that you’ll need to adjust the cooking time accordingly to ensure you don’t over or undercook the shrimp.
  • If you want to add another pop of acidity, sun-dried tomatoes make a great addition to this shrimp scampi recipe.

Storage & Reheating

This Shrimp Scampi with Linguine will last for up to 2 days in the fridge.  Just store it in an air-tight container.  To reheat, microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway.  If it is not warm enough, add 30 seconds.  Repeat until you’ve reached your desired temperature.

If you want to keep this even longer, it will freeze for up to 6 weeks in a sealed container without the pasta.  You’ll need to thaw the shrimp overnight in the fridge before reheating.  Then, heat in the microwave or skillet until warm and add in freshly cooked pasta.

Shrimp Scampi FAQs

What’s the difference between using white wine versus chicken broth?

The white wine gives the shrimp scampi a more of a light and bright flavor, while the chicken broth is more savory and salty.  The one that you choose to use is totally your preference. If you have the wine on hand, I’d use that over the chicken broth.

Can I serve the pasta on the side?

Sure!  Keep in mind, though, that the pasta gets its flavor from the sauce that is on the shrimp and asparagus, so it is more flavorful when tossed together.

Can I make this shrimp scampi low carb?

Yes, you can make this low recipe carb.  An easy way to do this is to use veggie pasta instead of linguine – you can find this in most grocery stores.

Can I use precooked frozen shrimp for this recipe instead of fresh?

Yes, if you don’t want to use fresh shrimp (or can’t find any that look good at the grocery store), you can use frozen shrimp. Save yourself the trouble and go ahead and get the peeled and deveined frozen shrimp. Let the shrimp thaw completely inside a colander, so the water drains off, and they aren’t sitting in it. Then you’ll just want to toss them in the sauce with the asparagus until heated through.
