    This recipe is delicious, I have made this 5 times now.<br/>The amount of cayenne pepper in the recipe does make it quite hot so the last time I made this I substituted cajun instead of cayenne and it was perfect.<br/>I also cut down the time of making this recipe by using 1 &1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder instead of chopping garlic, I found no difference.<br/>Tossed with linguini noodles is the best!<br/>I also double the recipe as the original does not make much.

    I read some reviews first and followed some advice- double the sauce, but I didn't double the cayenne. OMG! We will be adding this to our regular rounds of dinner. So good- everyone loved it and it was seriously delish! I served it over pasta with some ceasar salad and crusty bread and we all wished there was more when we finished. Seriously good and considering how fast it came together and how easy it was- this is a huge winner in my books! THanks for a great recipe!

    Awesome! I loved this! It reminded me of a spiced shrimp I've had on the coast of North Carolina. Wonderfully delicious and easy too! I served it with Jasmine rice and some stir fried zucchini. Note: I dusted the raw shrimp with some cornstarch to thicken the sauce a bit. I have to modify the heat for my household.

    Made this just as instructed except used frozen clean devained shrimp as it was what I had on hand. My family loves it! The recipe is fast and very easy. Should have doubled the sauce and rice as everyone raved...two familiy memebers went home and made it the next day.

    This recipe is similar to one of my favorite shrimp recipes (Recipe #391721). Except my recipe has slightly different ingredients, using white wine instead of beer. I had to try this beer recipe and it was great. I can now use beer when I am out of white wine in my recipe because this Butter-Beer Sauce is just as good.

    I just cut the Cayenne back to a 1/4 tsp and the crushed red pepper to a shake or two. Next time I'm going to try to make it a thicker sauce so it holds on to the pasta better. Great recipe.

    We really liked this but I did make some changes. With reading the other reviews I did double the sauce but wasn't sure if I really needed too. I used Italian seasoning instead of oregano, basil and thyme as that is all I had. I also used old bay instead of the cayenne and red pepper flakes. I forgot to double the salt and pepper. I ate some on brown rice but everyone else ate them plain. We all really enjoyed these with the changes made.

    This was a super-quick and easy dish to make, I loved it! I substituted paprika for the cayenne peppers because my family can't take spicy foods, but it was still great and the sauce was amazing to dip french bread in! Thanks!
