Sometimes I just daydream about how I can incorporate shrimp scampi into my every day life.

I mean, we have the actual shrimp scampi. The dip shrimp scampi. The spaghetti squash shrimp scampi. The foil packet shrimp scampi.

I’m really trying to hit them all, especially with this gnocchi shrimp scampi here.

Now we have the best elements of a shrimp scampi here – the garlicky, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth goodness, of course. And it’s soaking up the perfectly golden-brown toasted gnocchi and sauteed shrimp.

You also have all the grilled baguette slices you need to sop up every last drop of the drippings in this pan!

    Excellent! Not too heavy and very easy. Quite delicious

  2. Would you be able to replace the butter with ghee? If so, do you have a measurement suggestion?

    OMG this dish was “Damn Delicious!” This will be my favorite way to cook Shrimp Scampi from now on.

  4. Amazing! I did thicken my sauce a little too much, but it didn’t take away from this being the best shrimp scampi I have ever had.

  5. I made this with my roommates and used mini gnocchi!!! a mistake, but still delicious (will probably make with mini gnocchi again)! Thank you for this amazing recipe! the garlic butter sauce is SO good to dip bread in.

  6. This is one of the best gnocchi recipes I have tried. I did substitute wine for chicken broth.

  7. Step 3 doesn’t specify what to melt, assuming it’s butter?

  8. I cook gnocchi in milk! It changes to taste! And with shrimps in butter!

  9. Lovely combination of flavours ! Love it !

  10. This looks incredible! I need this in my life right now!

  11. Step 3 is missing the what the two tablespoons are…assuming it’s butter.

  12. I haven’t had shrimp scampi before (oops) but this recipe seems like the perfect place to start! And it’s so healthy too!

  13. This makes my mouth water  How many people would this serve? I would love to serve it to 8 people.

  14. Oh my favorite things ~~ gnocchi and shrimp scampi! It can’t get better than this. I’ll be trying this recipe soon.
    Thanks.

  15. Is there anything to change in recipe if you make this with chicken?
