I used these for a shrimp dish where the shrimp was the main attraction, so I used big and meaty Jumbo Gulf Shrimp - beautiful. I liked the mix of both butter and olive oil in this recipe, as well as the addition of chives and shallots, not usually seen in Shrimp Scampi recipes. I didn't see the need for paprika so I omitted it, but I did miss the lemon that IS typically part of any scampi recipe (or white wine) so I had Hubs give the shrimp a squeeze of fresh lemon juice as he broiled (rather than grilled) them. Four stars because of the absence of lemon in the recipe - five stars when included.
