    So good! Used lime because I didn’t have lemon and my pasta had garlic and parsley in it! Amazing!

    It was good. I prepared too much angel hair pasta and not enough shrimp. Very easy recipe. Will make again.

    I love this recipe very easy to follow. I loved how they incorporated the red crush peppers into the recipe it gave it a nice kick! I used a wine called love story in the recipe and also for drinking with the meal. Very delicious will make again.

    A little bit on the lemony side, I would cut that ingredient by half maybe otherwise really good!

    Very good! I used about a 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes, and drained most of the sauce off before adding the pasta. I also added about 1/2 tsp of Cajun Seasoning to it as well. But I like the added spice.

    Used fresh angel hair pasta and upped the butter and wine for more sauce. Flavor was light and fresh. Will make again.

    This is a good baseline recipe to start with! I think 1/4 cup of lemon juice is a little too much. I added another 1/4 cup of wine (my partner got moscato instead of regular white), triple the red pepper flakes, doubled the butter, and double the garlic! We also couldn't get parmesan cheese so I used havarti cheese instead. With the additions, it turned out really well (just less lemon next time).

    I made this with bay scallops instead of shrimp. Great flavor! I squeezed 1/2 lemon and that was plenty of lemon for our taste. Loved the combination of the lemon and red pepper spice. Will make again!

    If I could find the directions and not learn about a dog named butters, I may have actually made the recipe!?!

    I followed the recipe and it had a little too much lemon, but we enjoyed it. I’ll be making it again.

    Too much lemon should’ve used less, but my family liked it!

    We loved it! The red pepper flakes were an amazing additive! Something we’ve never had before in Shrimp Scampi!

    It was delicious slighty spicing but I did not add the white wine into the ingredient. But overall delicious
    Diana 3 months ago
    This was delicious! I used two cloves of garlic and added a medium size shallot. I also added grape tomatoes, roasted red peppers and spinach for extra nutrition and flavor and it came out great. I skipped the Parmesan, it didn’t need it in my opinion. Very fresh tasting.
