Ultimate Shrimp Scampi Linguini

"This is a super simple recipe for shrimp scampi. Such a rich and elegant dish! For the white wine, I would recommend a Pinot Grigio. This is my take on a Tyler Florence recipe from Tyler's Ultimate!"

  1. This was very good. I was hesitant to add as much of the cooking water as it called for, but it really kept the pasta from being too dry. Thanks
  2. This was fantastic! I used 2 pounds of shrimp instead of one. I cleaned the shrimp and simmered the shells in 1 cup of water to use in place of the pasta water. I didn't have a shallot so I used a small onion and I only used 1/2 tsp. of crushed red pepper. I added the salt and pepper to the shrimp while they were cooking. My DS gave this 10 stars. This is a definite keeper. Thanks for a super recipe!!
  3. This was a hit at my house! I've never made shrimp scampi before and was a bit surprised how quickly everything had to go after putting the shrimp into the pan. But cooked up fast and was super yummy!
  4. Wonderful pasta. Made it exactly as written and we enjoyed it immensely. Made for Photo Tag.
  5. This is THE best shrimp scampi I have ever had, by far! For white wine I used my favorite pinot grigio that I always have on hand, and I left out the red pepper flakes. I topped the dish off with a little drizzle of olive oil, some sprinkled parsley, and a little sprinkled parmesan cheese. I come from a long line of authentic italian cooks so I've had my share of shrimp scampi dishes. This recipe truly is the ultimate! YUM!
