This is the most amazingly wonderful shrimp scampi recipe I have ever found!!! I'm not kidding here...It's an absolute perfect blend of flavors, and I think the lemon juice gives it a subtle "zing" flavor that other scampi recipes don't have. I made the recipe as written and then tossed cooked fettucini in the pan with it, added a couple of shakes of Parmesan cheese, and it was an wonderful, gourmet meal that had me saying "MMmmm ... MMmmmm ...OMG ..... MMmmmm" the whole time! It's a Newly Found Favorite of mine, and it's so easy that I'm going to use this recipe to impress guests (and family) from now on! Thank you for sharing Luvs2Cook!! :)
Great basi scampi recipe, but does need a few changes. After adding a bit of bell pepper and heavy cream to the sauce it was great!!! Making it again soon.
Very delicious and easy! Thank you for a great recipe.
