There wasn't any sauce. The flavor was lost, no lemon flavor at all. I did like the crisp of the shrimp - that was different, but totally not what I was expecting from the recipe. It was mouth sticking dry, even after I added olive oil and butter to the spaghetti. It is a basic good recipe, it just needs to be worked up into something that matches the name.

VERY bland - only seasoning you can taste is the cumin. Was a total waste of the shrimp!

This was good, but there is very little sauce for the pasta. I think I will make it again, but will increase the amount of garlic and cumin and probably double the sauce.

I add sautéd onion and garlic to almost everything-cooked in butter. I followed everything else except for adding a little more butter and McCormick’s Grillmates Roasted Garlic and Herb seasoning. My husband doesn’t like shrimp but he said it was about as good as any shrimp fish he’s ever had! Success!

I used all of the ingredients except the cumin.. I don't like the way it smells...I also chopped up a half Italian frying pepper and green onion and added it to the shrimp while cooking...it came out Fantastic!!?????????

With only 2 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp lemon juice, being the only liquid in this recipe, how can there be any sauce for the shrimp and pasta? There isn't enough there to cover the shrimp, let alone any for the pasta. Think I'll try making it anyway, but will add a cup of chicken broth and use butter instead of olive oil.

I'm going to try this because it sounds really good and Publix has shrimp on sale very often. I did read one reviewer write that there was 2 lbs of shrimp in this recipe. I read only 1lb of shrimp. If she's using that much shrimp, she should read the recipe again.
