      What can I say about this extraordinary recipe? It's ultra delicious and just delightful to everyone who tries it! I love scampi, so when I got Ina's new cookbook for Christmas, I focused right in on this scampi variation. I do want to share that if you prefer to remove the tails and not butterfly the shrimp (lay the shrimp down instead of placing them tail side up), there is absolutely no loss in flavor; in fact, this is simply wonderful prepared either way although the way its written is more showy! Love this recipe, LOVE Ina and so appreciate you posting the recipe for everyone to enjoy! Thanks!!

      I needed a new recipe to impress my boyfriend. He's always making something great, so I had to take it to another level and knock his socks off, and this recipe did it! It was so easy to make! I bought the shrimp already de-veined at Costco, it makes the prepping so much quicker. I usually change up the recipe, but I didn't have to with this one, it's fabulous. My boyfriend loved it so much he insisted I make it for his dad on fathers day! Thanks B-Contessa!

      Apparently I am in the minority here, but this recipe didn't seem to work well for me at all. In step #6 there is mention of pouring the remaining marinade over the shrimp - what leftover marinade? The other steps don't mention holding any marinade back so I didn't get that part. Also, there seems to be far too much butter. My shrimp were swimming in butter part way thru the cooking so I drained it off and continued on. I broiled them for a few minutes to brown and crisp the topping. Shrimp normally disappears quickly at my house, but this time there was over half the dish left and I threw it out. Sorry for the low rating but I want to give an honest rating.
