Shrimp Monterey

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


6 servings

For a special occasion or when company's coming, this delicious seafood dish makes a lasting impression. You'll be surprised at how fast you can prepare it. A mild, fresh-tasting sauce and the Monterey Jack cheese nicely complement the shrimp, I serve it over pasta or rice. —Jane Birch Edison, New Jersey


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds uncooked shrimp (31-40 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • Hot cooked linguine, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute shrimp and garlic just until shrimp turn pink, 3-5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish.
  2. Add wine to skillet; bring to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced by half; pour over shrimp.
  3. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes. If desired, serve over linguine.

    I used wine for flavor& omitted cheese (less calories) turned out great. Loved by entire family

    Flavor is great but I wish the recipe told you how much linguine to use per serving. I cooked a whole box and felt more sauce was needed. The linguine is optional, I know, so next time I make this (and I will!) I might skip the carbs and have the shrimp with sautéed spinach.

    Needs more liquid. It came out like shrimp with lumps of cheese.

    I made this for my family tonight and it was restaurant quality. I used the wine and I forgot the garlic. I did put some seasoning called Best of the Bay and sprinkled that on it. I will make it again.

    I made this tonight for dinner. It had been planned for just my son and I but then my granddaughter joined us for dinner. I doubled the chicken broth and butter but left everything else the same. It was good and my son loved it. If I make it again I will add some Slap Yo Mama to add some heat but not a lot of salt.

    Delicious! I also doubled the amount of butter, garlic and white wine for more sauce over the pasta.

    SO awful! Way too cheesy! It is not even a sauce, but just a slab on shrimp and cheese, why would you eat that with linguine? I love to cook for my partner and this is the first time he has ever not eaten my food.
