    Recipe Reader's Note:

    Delicious! It is served here in a local Basque restaurant, and pairs well with rice or pasta. This can easily be made with less butter or no cream, if you'd like.

      Using Icelandic baby shrimp, I made a half recipe of this delicious scampi for the PRMR game & served it as an appy in gratin dishes over toast points for Christmas Eve dinner w/DH & my MIL. Other than using butter vs vegetable oil, I made just 1 other chg & added garlic that I see as a must (for me at least) in a scampi recipe. It was richly flavoured, generously sauced, well-received & an elegant start to our main holiday meal. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us. :-)

      Very tasty, as well as quick and easy to make. I normally like to add garlic to everything, but it was not missed here. The shrimp have a very rich, flavorful quality. The only thing different I did was to add a pinch of cayenne. Then I served it over 8 oz. of angel hair pasta (any more would absorb all the sauce). I will definitely make this again, and try it with orzo. Thanks for a lovely recipe. Made for PRMR.

      This is a great recipe. It is absolutely delicious. It is also very quick. I followed the ingredients per recipe except I only used 1 T lemon juice because of personal preference. Made for PRMR.
