Wonderful! I love shrimp scampi but don't love oozing butter from every pore after I eat it. This was delicious and very light tasting, perfect with homemade whole wheat noodles. I didn't have any wine so used extra chicken broth, and didn't have fresh lemon juice so used the napalm kind in the squeeze bottle. We also threw in some asparagus spears to use them up. Oh boy did we clean our plates. Husb agreed that we must make this again soon. Thanks a lot.
I REALLY loved this one! Tasted just as good as the full fat version, without all the oil! I did not have fresh parsley and was stuck using dry but offset it with extra fresh ground black pepper. I served this over spaghetti and there was enough to coat 2 servings of pasta with the sauce from this dish. SUPER yummy! My 4 year old loved it! Thank you! UPDATE: I tried to double the sauce tonight to adequately coat 1 lb of pasta....didn't go so well. WAY too lemony! So, if you're thinking of doing the same, you could probably double the wine/broth but may want to think twice about doubling the lemon too. Loved it still!
