This shrimp scampi recipe looks like you fussed, but it’s easy 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

"Excellent recipe. I made French bread to go with it, and it was great for sopping up the juices."

"(Stars still aren't working right. All are 'black')

I'd give it a one star although hubby said he liked it. Won't make it again. Was dry. Prefer my shrimp stir-fried or coconut covered."

"I love the broiling with breadcrumbs for crunch but it did overcook the shrimp a bit. Overall this was awesome."

"This was a quicker version of shrimp scampi than my usual, but was very tasty. I add 1/4 C white wine to the sauce for additional flavor that we enjoy. The crumb topping added a pleasant crunch. As another reviewed has said, take care NOT to overcook the shrimp. I have also doubled the recipe for company and added 1lb bay scallops for a "seafood scampi" that is quite good. We enjoy the texture of angel hair pasta with our scampi."

"Delicious! Easy to prepare, flavorful, and loved by everyone. Just as a side note, if you are serving this with pasta, there is not a lot of liquid, so you may want to add some for your pasta. I used a splash of olive oil, but some white wine or broth might taste good, too."
