Hello there! Welcome to Home Pressure Cooking, where you will find a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Lately, it has been a whole lot of Ninja Foodi recipes. I have to say the Ninja Foodi has been the best investment I have made in 2018. I am sure there will be a lot more sales in 2019 as the secret is getting out that the Ninja Foodi is pretty darn fab!

Shrimp Scampi in the Ninja Foodi

Jump to Recipe

Shrimp scampi is one of the easiest dishes you can make. Whether or not you use the stovetop, the pressure cooker, or as I will be sharing today in the Ninja Foodi. Remember all recipes made in any pressure cooker can be converted just the same as the Ninja Foodi pressure cooker methods. If you love garlic, add more, if you love lemon, squeeze on. My recipes always are flexible to your own taste buds. I am not a huge salt lover or user in most of my recipes so please remember to add to your own liking. In this recipe, I did use salt, but again, add more or less.

We can’t forget the butter. Butter has been a better friend to me these days than I imagined since I have started the Keto lifestyle. I made this recipe for my family with the pasta but for myself, I added it on top of zoodles. Oh so good! You can find my KETO recipes using the Ninja Foodi HERE.

I don’t have that many photos for this recipe, because I did a YouTube demonstration. You can see a visual of my step by step. So easy and delicious you will want to make this today. I have a few extra tips on making pasta in the pressure cooker as well. I hope you enjoy the video and at the end subscribe to my channel.

Shrimp Scampi in the Ninja Foodi


  • 1 lb. Spaghetti 16 oz.
  • 1 lemon juice and zest
  • 16 oz. Frozen deveined Shrimp
  • 1 cup cooking wine
  • 3 cups water/may also substitute water for chicken broth
  • 5 cloves garlic/chopped
  • olive oil For saute and on top of pasta
  • sea salt a dash
  • pepper coarsely grind a few dashes
  • parsely a dash
  • Fresh Parmesan
  • 1 stick Butter


  • First saute shrimp in half a lemon juice, and half a stick of butter and garlic. Shrimp only needs to saute for a minute or two. If frozen until defrosted. Continue to toss and saute. DO NOT BURN. Remove shrimp, butter and garlic. Make sure you save all the drippings. Set aside. Wipe pot clean.
  • Add  3 cups water or broth to the Ninja Foodi, 1 cup of cooking wine. Add spaghetti, I broke mine in half to fit in pot. Fanning your pasta will help prevent it from sticking before setting in pot. Add a dash of kosher salt, and a dash of olive oil. Be sure pasta is submerged. Set pressure cooking lid on Ninja. Set for 4-5 minutes high pressure. Quick release and gently remove lid away from face. It will be very hot and steamy. Stir pasta well.Add other half stick of butter, then Add shrimp back in pot, squeeze more lemon, stir, add parsley, stir, top with fresh Parmesan. ENJOY
