Absolutely delicious. Almost skipped the caper brine but decided on a last minute trip to the store for it. Absolutely worth it as it adds a certain zing. Company or weeknight - couldn't be better! Be sure to watch the video: it is short and gives helpful instructions.
I wasn't crazy about it. There was a lot of flavor lacking and I had to seriously doctor it up before I was able to eat it. After all was said and done I served it over angel hair pasta and it was good.
I love this! I didn't have caper brine, but it still turned out perfect to me. I added some chicken cubes (as I didn't have enough shrimp on hand at the time), cooked first before the shrimp as it needs more time. I served this with pasta for a quick dinner, yum!!
So tasty, and so simple. I also did not have caper brine, but used green olive juice instead. Rave reviews all around.
Very good! I did not use the caper brine, instead I used white cooking wine! I mixed the sauce and shrimp with cooked angel hair pasta and topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese! This is an excellent dish!
This recipe is so simple to make and really tasty..I found that the red pepper flakes add a world of difference .. I didn't have the caper brine so I left it out and it still was very tasty...thanks Chef John for the recipe and the video ...
This is a great meal My little one is not a fan of GARLIC but she loved this one.. I did add capers to the dish not justs the the Brine
Be prepared to pull out the shrimp when they are done and finish the sauce separately. Smaller shrimp may cook faster than required to finish off the sauce and it is critical to avoid over cooking the shrimp. Have the ingredients fully prepped, as in measured and combined where appropriate, and not just putting containers out on the counter. Husband calls this one a keeper, 5 stars.
