I used this recipe simply as a base for when I made it. The shrimps should be pulled straight out of the freezer, and fried right in butter and olive oil (put the oil in first then add the butter so the butter doesn't burn) until the shrimps are pink (you don't need to boil them at all, and this way they'll taste and look better anyway). Then instead of linguini use angel hair pasta and it'll go a lot better with the shrimp. Just make sure you remove the shrimp shells. I forgot to do this and my date had to pick them off individually before she ate them :)
I made no changes to the recipe. My husband and I both thought it was too lemony. If I make it again, I would only use a tablespoon of lemon juice,
We served this on Christmas Eve and everyone loved it. I made a few changes. I used 2 Lbs. of Shrimp (the frozen precooked kind and it was fine), increased the wine to 1 C and reduced the lemon juice to 2 Tbsps as suggested in other reviews. The rest of the recipe I kept the same. The flavor was great!
I made this recipe and it turned out fine!
This recipe was delicious but I made extensive changes. First off, I reduced the amount of shrimp by about 3/4. Then I removed the shrimp after cooking them so they didn't overcook. Then I sauteed artichoke hearts, sliced caper berries, capers, and finely minced green peppercorns in the pan. Then I added zucchini. Finally seared the tomatoes and then th
Delicious! I used frozen pre-cooked shrimp and reduced the cooking time, increased the amount of garlic and reduced the amount of linguini. I also eliminated the red pepper (too hot). It turned out as a very succesful dinner.
Excellent! A couple recommended changes: 1) Go easy on the pasta. 1lb is too much. Try 3/4lb. 2) I love this with scallops! Be sure to start the scallops in the butter/oil a little before you add the shirmp. The scallops take longer to cook than shrimp.
This recipe is out of this world!!!! It is sooo good that its ridiculous. The only changes I made was to use only 1/2 cup of white wine and 1/4 cup of lemon juice..and seasoned to taste. I definitely will be making this again, and again. Just AWESOME!
