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

"This dish with all it's flavors is easy to make and absolutely delicious!! I think fresh parsley is a nice touch along with fresh lemons! The only other thing I've added is white cooking wine and have gotten amazing feedback every time I make it and will definitely be serving this again!"

"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!"

"We thought this was delicious! This was my first time using a cast-iron skillet, but it was just so easy. The only thing I changed was that I used spaghetti instead of angel hair. Oh and I also used dried parsley instead of fresh. I can understand why the one reviewer said it was "dry", but I don't really agree. There isn't a traditional sauce. But the lemon and butter definitely keep this from becoming dry. Even the leftovers were delicious. We will definitely make this again."
