I squirted the lemon right in with the wine while preparing it. We loved it! I served it over linguine and had a small salad on the side with garlic bread. What a great combination and a great meal!

Oh wow, wow, yummy, yummy, quick, flavorful, and did I mention yummy? I had to make a couple changes. I was only able to afford cooked tail-on, deveined frozen large shrimp (the 1lb bag was on sale). I decided to halve this recipe. While thawing the shrimp in a strainer, I snapped off the tails. I used 1/2 tsp paprika for approx 1/2 lb shrimp. I used 2 tsp jarred, minced garlic for the fresh. For the wine, I got one of those mini bottles of white wine (Sutter Home Chardonnay) and used 1/4 cup. I used a pinch of salt and a couple pinches black pepper. Instead of lemon wedges, I added 1 tsp of lemon juice along with the shrimp to the reduced wine mixture. I used the amt of olive oil called for and for the butter, I used the same amt called for, but used Smart Balance with Flaxsweed OIl spread. I also added 1tsp dried parsley flakes a few mins before the shrimp was removed from heat. I cooked the shrimp for several mins so it could steep in the sauce, even though they were already fully cooked. I'm really glad I made the full amt of "sauce". I served this atop Simple Spaghetti Dish for a very quick and flavorful supper. I would definitely make this again! Bf seemed to enjoy it, also. I made this for Please Review My Recipe. Thanks for sharing, Bird! Shrimp Scampi is one of my all-time fave dishes, so this will be a happy addition to my faves cookbook.

I followed the directions down to the minute and this was the absolute best shrimp I've ever made. As far as ingredients, I added a tiny amount of powdered cayenne pepper to the pan as I sauteed the garlic. The white wine I had on hand was Pear wine. It was a little sweeter than I thought I should use, but there was a little left in the bottle and I didn't want to open a new one! PS I'd give it 10 stars if I could! P

Very easy and delicious, we enjoyed this very much exactly as is. I would have used the breadcrumbs, but thought I didn't have any, discovered them the next day exactly where they are supposed to be, sigh. So next time I'll add them! However, they are certainly not required, for this to be a 5 star dish. Thanks, very good!

Very good. We served over pasta. We enjoyed this for dinner last evening and next time I will add some spice to it. I think the addition of red pepper flakes would be wonderful. I believe I could cut down the butter for us also. I did add the optional bread crumbs and recommend adding them. Nice and easy. Thanks for a great meal 2Bleu!

Overall a very easy recipe and great for mid week but would like to see a little more kick in it and would add a finely sliced chilli with the garlic next time. Served with steamed rice and vegetables, I also used 500brams (1lb) of prawn flesh for 3. Thank you 2Bleu, made for Please Review My Recipe.

Very good combination of ingredients. I didn't use the optional breadcrumbs. Next time I'll try it with the suggested scallops. Thanks for a great and easy recipe.
