This is the best tasting shrimp that I have ever had. Every ingredient from the red pepper flakes to the lemon makes this recipe as great as it is. I made sure to follow the directions exactly and it came out perfectly. I used this recipe and added it with Alfredo pasta and it was a great match.

Really good recipe! I also added some white cooking wine and whole grain angel hair pasta to it, and it was very tasty, and especially, very easy.

Used a pound of smaller shrimp. Should have doubled the sauce but since I didn't know how much 12 jumbo shrimp weighed, I wasn't sure what to do but I will know next time. The taste was great. I used the batch of the smaller shrimp like Red Lobster's shrimp scampi and tossed them onto Caesar salad. YUMMY! If you like spicy, add more red pepper. If using frozen cooked shrimp, defrost and dry the shrimp first and then the sauce comes out great. If you don't it will be watery.<br/><br/>Update: Made this again with JUMBO shrimp but didn't use the Montreal Seasoning and used extra lemon, then I made Kittencal's Caesar salad dressing recipe to make Shrimp Scampi-Caesar Salad and it was amazing.

This shrimp is amazing!! My boyfriend says they are way better than any he's ever had in a restaurant. I used Old Bay seasoning instead of steak seasoning. So yummy!! Served with Garlic Parmesan Spaghetti. Fantastic meal!

This tastes amazing; and is equally amazing to make! Doesn't take any time at all. We have this quite often at our place.

Had 18 shrimp, doubled the sauce recipe and added a red vine-repened jalapeno, 3 tbsp. butter and lime from the tree instead of the lemon. Absolutely a winner !!

I've made this a few times now and it is DELISH! Quite spicy, though, so be warned! :) Thanks for sharing!

OMG! This recipe was so good. My sister and I loved this! It had so much flavor. The lemon juice and steak seasoning really made this taste wonderful. After cooking it, I poured some of the mixture left in the pan over the shrimp and served on a bed of rice.

Wonderful flavor! Excites my tastebuds. I did alter this a bit to our liking but it's pretty much the same recipe. I used more shrimp (precooked frozen kind) and added chicken breast tenderloin strips cut up to the oil that had the sauted garlic and pepper flakes in it. I seasoned with Montreal Seasoning (chicken) and ended up throwing in a box of Zatarains Garlic & Herb Rice along with a touch more lemon juice and the zest. I didn't have parsley fresh so I used chopped fresh cilantro. Very tasty! I will definitely make again. Oh and I forgot to mention that I threw in sliced onion pieces also while the oil and seasonings were infusing.
