Shrimp Scampi with Linguini

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
Simple, tasty recipe. I added a dash of Pickapeppa and a dash of cayenne pepper for some zip, and used canned diced tomatoes to make it saucier. Definitely cut back on the lemon juice, and watch the shrimp so it doesn't overcook. I also added fresh zuchinni. I will definitely make this again, but will get fresh seasonings, and maybe try adding some pesto and omitting the other stuff I added. Angel hair or thin spaghetti works best.

Garlic Balsamic Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
Cool recipe - I tried pretty much the same thing, and found I was able to add a lot of flavor by adding fresh parsley and also, very importantly, tomato paste, schiracha thai hot sauce, and lemon juice to the marinade. Cooking the vegetables along with the shrimp works great either on the grill, ni a skillet, or under a broiler, as they are all about equally dense and cook perfectly together. Don't marinade the shrimp longer than ~25 min if you add lemon juice as the shimp will become tough. Serve on top of vermicelli pasta with parmesan cheeze, olive oil, and fresh cracked pepper.
