I made this dish tonight; it turned out awesome. I had some mushrooms I was looking to use and sauteed them with the shallots and garlic.
One step that should be added is to reserve one cup of the pasta water, which should be added just prior to adding the pasta and shrimp. This adds starch and helps give the sauce a smooth texture.
Very tasty, was a tad dry. I'd recommend adding 1/2 - 1 cup of the pasta water to keep it moist.
loved it! Unfortunately, we ate it before I remembered to add a photo. I like my food a little spicy, so I added more red pepper and salt. Easy and delicious. Try it, you won't regret it!
This dish was very easy and extremely tasty!! I'm so happy to find such an awesome dish to add to my favorites.
Since I don't carry fresh lemons...and I'm usually a spur of the moment cook...I substituted the fresh lemon and pepper dashes with a Lemon Pepper seasoning. It turned out great and added the lemon flavor. :D
I made this last night for Valentine's after remembering a similar dish my husband and I had on vacation. I was really worried my husband wouldn't like it (he's picky about seafood dishes) but after one bite, he declared his approval and I squealed with delight. This dish is amazing (and SUPER simple!) I didn't have any shallots, but I used half a diced white onion and it was superb. I think I also used a bit more butter than what was called for, but hey. It's was Valentine's Day! I left out the wine (again, didn't have any) but now that my husband likes it, I plan to sneak it in there the next time I make it...and there will be a next time. The lemon makes it taste fresh and yummy and delicious. I would say I'm looking forward to the leftovers, but we ate the whole thing! I'm happy report that this will be making an appearance in our kitchen again and I'd love to try it with a combination of shrimp, lobster, and/or crab. I truly can't say enough about this recipe. It's great!
Excellent recipe. I made as written and did not add the pasta water, as some have suggested. I have no regrets in putting my trust in the author of the recipe. I will definitely be making again.
Angel hair makes this dish decadent.
Made as directed but also added 1 cup pasta water to sauce as suggested by one reviewer. This was light, refreshing, delicious! Will definitely make again!
