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

"Incredibly tasty! Hubby and I made this today for the first time and loved it. Used crunchy Italian bread crumbs. Doubled the butter and increased amount of cheese. Also added some frank's hot sauce. Absolutely delicious. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!"

"Made this once before and found it to be very good. I am making it today for Easter dinner as there is only the two of us and wanted something elegant, but delicious. My only changes (based on the first time) is I will add a bit more garlic (it all depends on the size of your garlic cloves, some are small, but some I buy are huge) and I will add some white wine to the sauce (also will double the sauce). This time I plan on serving it over rice instead of the pasta. That along with some steamed asparagus and rolls...............Yummmmmm."

"I make this at least 1/month. My fiance has always been fond of Red Lobster's shrimp scampi. Last time we ate there, he thought scampi was bland. I use slightly less lemon juice & more cloves of garlic."

"This recipe needs about a half cup of chicken broth or white wine to keep it from being too dry. Otherwise, it is very, very tasty."
