    Finally a shrimp scampi recipe that was not too greasy/fatty but also had just the right amount of light flavoring. I just sauteed 1 lb of medium shrimp in the sauce. Served

    This is an easy to prepare recipe with amazing flavor. I added some lemon zest, red pepper flakes, and added fresh parsley for garnish.

    Would make it again making changes I made. Saute garlic in olive oil, rather than butter, eliminate lemon juice, use more garlic.
