I thought this was just plain terrible. The proportion of wine to butter is way too high...it just tasted like warm wine to me. It is unusual for me not to like a recipe that is this highly rated, so I suppose it is possible that I did something wrong, but I am pretty sure I followed the recipe to the letter.

I'm afraid that I'm not a big fan of this recipe. Something was missing. After finishing the recipe, I added a little salt, white pepper and some lemon juice. The white wine was a bit strong so I removed the shrimp and let the sauce boil down. I will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.

Had a pound of shrimp in the freezer and gave it a try since I didn't have everything I needed on hand to make my shrimp pasta. I added a tablespoon of lemon juice and followed Pagan's advice of running it under the broiler with some greated parmesan. Turned out great, as good as any that I have had in a restaurant! Thanks for the recipe, its a keeper.

This was exactly what I was looking for and is a great shrimp scampi. I used extra wine, also good when reheating on stove, and I used precooked frozen shrimp and cooked it less.

Loved this recipe. I made a few changes by using 2 tablespoons garlic and adding a tablespoon of lemon juice. Thank you!

This was way too buttery. I'd omit half the butter. Also there was too much wine, I'd cut that down a bit too. But overall a pretty decent recipe, I ate it with rice and enjoyed it. Another tip- make sure to use fresh parmaesan.

We're low carb, so I made this with broccoli and cauliflower and a bit more cheese (also garlic butter). Was great. TY for posting.

hubby raved! It definitely needed salt & pepper though. I also added a good amount of lemon juice to balance out the low notes in the garlic. Amazing!
