I made this recipe using small scallops in place of shrimp and added in some dried chili flakes for heat, I think the wine needs to be reduced slightly as it overpowered the ingredients a little, I will reduce by 1/4 cup next time, also I increased the garlic to 2 tablespoons, my DS enjoyed this with crusty bread, thanks for sharing Kel!...Kitten:)

Family loved this recipe. My 2 cents: this recipe does come out with a lot of juice and what I did was drain all the juice into a pan and reduce it until the liquid thickened up and added back to the shrimp! This made the dish soooo delicious!

I don't cook much but wanted to make a special dinner so I found this recipe that looked really easy. I did alter it a little based on what I had on supply.. I used under 2 lbs shrimp and I substituted fresh garlic for 1 Tbs olive oil with garlic in it. I didn't use white wine (not b/c I didn't have it but I wasn't going to use it all up in the recipe) ;) 1/2 cup butter 1 Tbs lemon juice 1Tbs parm cheese like you use with spagetti, I used tsp salt and sprinkled dried parsley. I melted all the ingredients and then poured over my shrimp in the baking dished. Watching it cook and turn pink I pulled it out as it was bubbling and it was perfectly done. We noticed it needed a little kick. Maybe the wine would have given it that needed kick but a dash of black pepper worked just fine. My special people loved it!
