Made with 3 kinds of cheese, this Olive Garden-inspired shrimp scampi offers a rich and creamy dish that's perfect for special nights.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 40 mins


  • 6 shrimp
  • 1⁄8 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp onion , finely diced
  • ½ tsp garlic , minced
  • ½ cup dry white wine , such as Chablis
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1⁄4 tsp garlic salt
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1⁄4 cup water , optional
  • ½ cup asiago cheese , finely shredded, plus additional 1 tbsp
  • 1⁄4 cup mozzarella cheese , finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp Romano cheese , finely shredded
  • 4 black olives , sliced
  • 1 tbsp green onion , sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup tomato, diced
  • 4 slices Italian bread , (4 to 6-inch long, 1½-inch thick) cut diagonally, lightly toasted
  • 1⁄4 tsp red pepper, crushed


  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan; add wine and lemon juice. When olive oil starts to boil, place shrimp in the pan and cook on medium heat until shrimp curls. Remove shrimp but leave wine mixture in the pan.
  2. In the same saucepan, add onion, minced garlic, and garlic salt. Saute until the onions are transparent.
  3. Mix flour with 1 tablespoon of water to make a paste.

  4. Add flour paste to the saucepan. Stir and cook until sauce is thick.
  5. Pour cream in the sauce, stir, then add the cheeses 1 at a time, whisking constantly after each addition. The sauce should be a medium-thick consistency and smooth.

To Assemble:

  1. Place Italian bread on a serving tray in an X.
  2. Arrange shrimp in the middle of the bread.
  3. Spoon sauce in the middle of the bread, covering the shrimp.
  4. Sprinkle with sliced green onions, olives, tomatoes, and red pepper on top. Sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on top if desired. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If the sauce is too thick, add a little water and whisk. Remove from heat.
