I have been looking for THE scampi recipe for the longest time...thank you...this is IT! I have made it several times now, 1st time to a "T", but have since adjusted a few things based on what I had on hand (wine + sherry, chive instead of scallion), and it has been awesome every time! I do believe that shallots are the key and should not be substituted. Thanks again!
