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.
It was just okay lacking some depth of flavor even with the caper brine in it which made it a bit unusual but not unpalatable. the sauce was rather soupy and the shrimps had a different texture from the high cooking temperature. Next time i might coat them with flour or starch and use a medium high heat remove them then compose the sauce.
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.
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
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!
The only tweak I made was to only add one of the 1 1/2 T of cold butter, as I like more of a thicker sauce than a soupy one. Simple recipe to execute. Kudos to Chef John!
