Very good and simple. I've been looking for a good shrimp scampi recipe for a long time and either the ones I had previously found were way too simple or way too involved. This recipe is perfect. Definitely added the lemon, the lemon makes it absolutely delish for us. Thanks for a great recipe!!

Cut recipe in half, used whole wheat linguine, large shrimp and white cooking wine and thickened a bit with a little cornstarch. Flavor was excellent and shrimp stayed quite tender. The whole wheat linguine flavor competed with the scampi sauce and next time I will try it with white flour linguine. Overall excellent and will make again. Easy to put together, thank you Mr. Food!!!

Very easy to prepare and taste is yummy! Got the approval from husband and both my daughters!!
