Too lemony with the juice of half a lemon. I found it to be tasteless and too heavy with all the butter.

Just sat down to review this and realized I forgot to add the parsley at the end. Opps. Very good, but make sure to add a good amount of hot sauce. Really needs it for flavor. I didn't becaus...

Very good! I was a little nervous about sauteeing shrimp for the first time, but they came about perfectly. I read other reviews about the flavor being a bit bland, so added some diced habanero ...

My Husband and I truly enjoyed this recipe. We added a little bit of a Teriaky marinade to it. A really yummy meal.

Pretty good. As it was I thought it was a bit plain, but still good so I put four stars. Added chili powder and a lotta cayenne to my own.

This was pretty good. I have been looking for a recipe that calls for fines herbs and it was nice to finally use them.

This was delicious. I had mine with spaghetti squash rather than pasta. Next time I will reduce the butter and try using 1/2 the amount and replacing the remainder with olive oil.
