    This was a very good recipe for sauteed shrimp. Easy to follow. I substituted crushed garlic I had handy for the minced, and I would not recommend doing that as the texture was a little weird. Overall, though, the flavors of this recipe were great!

    A delicious dish! I will make it again and again! I do love shrimp and this is the best scampi recipe I have come across!

    This is one of the BEST shrimp scampi recipes I have ever made! To make the sauce a little richer, and add a few grams of fat, add about a teaspoon of light butter at the end of reducing the sauce, but before you add the shrimp back in.

    This recipe was so easy and tasted fantastic. It was the first time I’ve ever made shrimp. The hardest part for me was learning the easiest way to take the shell off. The taste was superb. I chose to serve it tossed over linguini. Great even the next day as left overs.

    I really enjoyed this shrimp a lot! If you want it a little more spicy just add more red pepper flakes. I also used some scallops as well as shrimp and it was delicious!! This recipe is a keeper for me.

    I made this with too much red pepper and it was spicy! Good flavor, but I admit, I think it needed chix broth and cream added.

    fabulous recipe. I used chicken stock instead of wine and added some lime juice for brightness it was great hot. would be fabulous cold in a salad.
