Shrimp Scampi looks like you fussed, but it’s a snap to prepare. Lemon and herbs enhance the shrimp, and bread crumbs add a pleasing crunch. Served over pasta, this main dish is pretty enough for company. —Lori Packer, Omaha, Nebraska

"Delicious and quick. Watch for bags of frozen, peeled, deveined shrimp to go on sale (if you're landlocked like me). Agree with use of some red pepper flakes for heat, but add into the oil to flavor it. Can use white wine in place of lemon juice (or combination of the two). Add a little bit of the pasta water to make more sauce, without adding extra fat."

"Excellent! Easy and very flavorful. I cut back on lemon juice as I am not a fan. I used garlic flavored seasoned bread crumbs as I love garlic. I paired with brown rice made with chicken broth but I can see if you were using pasta you would need to double the sauce. Will definitely make again!"
