  • “Who would of thought shrimp scampi would be this easy to make, and this good.Thanks again for another fabulous recipe Inez!!I actually served this over linguine, and there are no left overs.”

  • “”MMMMMMM…this is good!” were my daughter’s (she’s 8)comments as we sat down to eat this the other afternoon.I was looking at the scampi recipes because I had some shrimp and I was really glad I found this one that didn’t use white wine…since we don’t have wine or other alcohol in the house…I followed the recipe to a “T” except I added garlic salt for the salt, a can of diced tomatoes, and a little more parsley.It was served over spaghetti and my family really enjoyed it!Leftovers were just as good the day after for lunch!Thanks for such a delicious, non-white wine recipe!It’s akeeper!”

  • “I liked this recipe. I would have liked to take a big bowl of it with some crusty bread and gone off into a corner to eat it all myself!The shrimp were swimming in the sauce so for next time, I would strain off the shrimp and keep the left over sauce in a separate container to be used as a dipping sauce, if someone wanted to do that.”

  • “Really delicious, plus quick and easy to make!!”

  • “Simple prep and very tasty. I made as posted but next time I would reduce the salt to 1/8 teaspoon. Shrimp is an excellent source for vitamin D.Served ours with brown rice,carrots, and a salad.Thank you MizzNezz for sharing. Made for the first recipe for the 2 for 1:Leftovers event in Cooking Photos forum.”

  • “These are DANGEROUSLY DELICIOUS and so simple to make it’s scary.I would enjoy this over some pasta too and maybe it would help me eat fewer of them.These are just the right size to pop in your mouth, and they’re so BUTTERY.I used a cup of butter, but I think 3/4 cup is probably plenty.Made for P-A-R-T-Y 2009.Thanks MizzNezz!”

  • “I scaled the recipe down for a dozen shrimp to have with my Surf & Turf meal last night. WOW what great flavor. I defiantly will make this again and again. Thanks for posting.”

  • “Delicious! I made this and served it over linguine with some grated parmesan. We loved it and it’s so simple and easy to make!”

  • “Made this tonight and just took 2 bites. Couldn’t wait to rate it 5 stars. Easy and delicious! For me, it doesn’t get any better than that. Thanks for sharing this recipe.”

  • “This was very very good.My boyfriend from South Florida raved over how perfectly tender the shrimp were.This is definitely a keeper I’ll make over and over again.Thanks MizzNezz!!!”

  • “Great.Very tasty and easy to make.”

  • “Very good recipe.I didn’t have any lemon but it was still great without it.Next time will use the lemon for sure.Again, nice to see no wine in the recipe.Simple and fast.We served it hot as a side dish and my husband barely left any for me!!Will have to double up next time!Thanks”

  • “Great recipe.happy to see no wine as an ingredient.”

  • “Not bad.Not WOW either.Too much parsley and not enough garlic according to my husband the food critic.The basis of the recipie is great, but area for improvement.We are SO glad we found a non wine recipe.Thanks for it.”

  • “Very easy to make, but we thought it was average tasting.”
