Had this fast and easy recipe for dinner last night. The only modification I made was to use a fresh jalapeno in lieu of the red pepper flakes, which worked well. Like another reviewer, we did feel the taste of the wine was pretty pronounced in the dish (and we like wine and I used a good one). We served over linguine. Thanks!

A simple and very tasty shrimp scampi! I may reduce the amount of white wine by about half next time, as my BF, who's not a fan of vino, claimed to taste too much of it. I actually found the undertone to be pleasing, but will admit that the oven method did not allow for the simmer/alcohol evaporation that you get with a saute technique. I topped with freshly grated parmesan, garnished with fresh chopped parsley, and served over linguini. It paired nicely with a crisp, fruity Portuguese white wine, Herdade de Grous Branco 2007 Alentejo. Thank you, Mama, for an easy, elegant dinner!

My picky dh & I really enjoyed this dish. All the flavors complimented one another other perfectly. The shrimp were spicy and cooked just right while the sauce was super on the rice. Thanks for another winner Mama.

This was very oily with very little flavor. Would not make it again.

Well said! Fast and Yummy. And easy to make too. OK, I have used a bit more red pepper flakes, but I like it very spicy. In combination with Pasta for taking up all of the sauce a wonderful and light dish. Thanks for sharing.

This made a super fast and easy dinner! I found that after 7 minutes in the oven the wine still had a "raw" flavor so I cooked it longer until it's flavor mellowed. I used both the red pepper flakes and the cayenne and did not find it too spicy at all. I love that the oven did all the work. Thanks MAMA's Kitchen!
