"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."

"I have tried several shrimp scampi recipes over the years and this one is definitely the best! We added some spinach after to the pasta after draining the water. My husband and I agree that this was restaurant quality. Thanks for sharing!"
