Garlic and lemon lend a pleasant flavor to these speedy sauteed shrimp from Sheryll Hughes-Smith of Jackson, Mississippi. 'I like to serve them over wild rice mix from a box,' she says.

I love the garlic butter shrimp they serve at Red Lobster's and this recipe tasted just like it. The only thing I did different was add some basil leaves and some pepper. It was delicious. My family absolutely loved it!!! Read More

Delicious and sooo easy! I used cooked shrimp since that's all I had. I just cooked the garlic in the butter first and threw in the shrimp to warm them through before adding the lemon juice. Served with broiled parmesan tomatoes and a baked potato, and bread to soak up the sauce. Yummy!!! Read More

Made this tonight for boyfriend and a guest - was delicious and pretty healthy. I used more like 1/4 cup of garlic (in my opinion, you can never have too much garlic, and once I mixed it in with everything else, it didn't seem like too much), used Trader Joes' Papardelle pasta instead of rice, and added in chopped fresh parsley at the end (that's important - it would have been much more bland looking and tasting without that). It was great - I think next time I'll mix in a little heavy cream in the end to liven up the pasta and give it a creamier flavor. But all in all - delicious!! Read More

I've tried this and it's good. :) I made a few changes the second time I did this though. I marinated the shrimp in Sprite and I added some seasoning mix. It REALLY tastes good with rice. Read More

In keeping true to my Spanish host mom's style, I didn't use lemon juice (but wish I had..), used olive oil instead of butter, and realllly upped the garlic. Served with crusty bread and sliced tomatoes drizzled with olive oil, vinegar and salt. Read More

This is an excellent recipe. I added a few red pepper flakes and some parsley and oregano and upped the garlic a bit. We'll have this again! Read More

One of my husband's standard favorites now. I do thicken the sauce with cornstarch or flour (mixed with water first). Quick and easy~ Read More

Husband loved this! We used EZ Peel shrimp and put over rice. Very quick and easy to make. I think it's too much butter in the recipe so I'll cut back on that next time. Read More
