    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a restaurant-quality dish that can easily be prepared at home, you may adjust the amount of fresh garlic and hot sauce may be replaced for the dried chili flakes, make certain that you pat the shrimp dry with paper towels to remove all the moisture or it will create a thin sauce. --- this dish is *very* good!

      Who needs to go to Olive Garden now??? I LOVED this dish! It was just as good as something I would order out, I will make this again for sure! I cooked as directed, but I added some orange bell pepper along with the garlic (also used more garlic) and less crushed red peppers as my kids wont eat spicy. While my shrimp was cooking I steamed zucchini, snow peas, and some asparagus spears and added that to the cooked shrimp mix and then tossed over angel hair pasta. So it was a whole meal in one! I also added just a bit of cornstarch to the sauce before adding to the noodles because it was very thin. This might have been due to me doubling the recipe, I have 6 to feed! Very very good, and I might try again, with chicken, so its a bit cheaper! Thank you for a fantastic recipe! Edited to say I bet my sauce was thin because I did not pat dry my shrimp. Re reading over the recipe (and looking at my deliscious picture) I noticed it said to do this, I missed it before making. OOOOOPS!

      Oh. My. Goodness. This is the BEST scampi recipe I have made at home that could EASILY rival any restaurant. Note: it's big on lemon, so if you're not so much...can back off and still make a great dish. KEEPER!!!

      So delish! Made this for our anny dinner. Left out the red pepper b/c we have three small children. The lemon flavor got inside the shrimp...mmmm. Be aware that this has a really strong lemon flavor. Next time I might try a little white wine in the sauce. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine b/c my daughter is sensitive to milk products and it worked great.
