This was a great base recipe I added Mrs Dash Caribbean Citrus to shrimp and I only had onion and green peppers so I used those and followed the rest exactly. Loved it cant go wrong I will make again soon.
This is a really nice way to do shrimp scampi! I've tried a bunch of shrimp scampi recipes and this is one of the top. The flavor is outstanding. I added a chopped tomato and some parsley just to add a little color and served it over linguini. Only thing I would do differently is to double the sauce. Topped with some fresh greated parmesan cheese.
