I wanted a simple shrimp recipe and this is it. I followed the recipe as written except I did not have paprika. I found it to be delicious! I served it over brown rice. It could have been a little bit thicker. I will make it again!!

Oh my these are good. I made this for dinner the other night and served it with rice pilaf and cauliflower. These are rich and buttery and garlicky, so good. I will most definitely serve these again. My whole family couldn't get enough of them.

Excellent recipe! I enjoyed it but not as much as my mother who took the leftover sauce home. I followed the recipe but omitted the margarine. I slowly melted the butter and added the garlic as it was melting. Once melted, I increased the heat and added the olive oil, wine and fresh squeezed lemon juice. When the sauce is boiling I added the shrimp followed by the paprika. When the shrimp is cooked I poured it all in a serving dish and sprinkled with fresh parsley.

The ease of this recipe is exactly what I was looking for...unfortunately the taste went out with the difficulty. I think if I had followed the advice of others and reduced the sauce a bit it might have improved the flavor. As is, it is a bit oily and is definitely lacking something, I just can't put my finger on exactly what it is...lemon juice or zest? white pepper? dash of pepper sauce? I just don't know. I will probably keep searching for that perfect scampi cause this one is far from perfection.

Fantastic! We made this today to have alongside king crab legs for our Thanksgiving dinner. I'm so happy I chose this recipe to make. The sauce did make a lot for the amount of shrimp but that's totally okay with us as we used it to dip the crab legs in also. Excellent recipe that I followed to a T, and I would make this again. Thanks for sharing!

This is great! First time making a scampi and it was a wonderful taste, just what I expected. I didn't have butter, so just used the 1/2 c. margarine. Served over egg noodle pasta (all I had on hand) and it was an excellent meal!

Hubby said 3, I said 4. We don't cook with a lot of wine so it might just be that. It was super easy and quick. The thin sauce was good on the rice we served it with. Took Pagan's suggestions.
