This simple shrimp dish can be used as a pre-meal snack or the appetizer course. It's easy and quick to make on the stovetop, especially when the lemon juice, zest, and garlic are measured ahead of time.

I did saute the garlic and the red pepper flakes (to taste - I did not use what the recipe listed I felt it was way too much flakes for the amount of shrimp) in a little butter and olive oil first to bloom the flavors. I pretty much followed the rest of the recipe except I did not measure the seasonings, I just sprinkled as I cooked. Simple and delicious. It was not too "lemony", just tangy enough. I will most definitely make this dish again...thank you! Read More

I used a tablespoon of olive oil and a pat of butter to sauté the first three ingredients. Followed the remainder of recipe and found the shrimp to be light and tasty. I made two sides to complete the meal: orzo with feta and cooked green beans. Read More

This was an excellent dish! I did add a little oil in the pan as others suggested. Next time only 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes. 1 tsp. was too much for us. Thanks for the recipe! Will definitely make again! Read More

We always make the recipe as presented, the first time. This was really excellent though a little spicy for our tastes. Will definitely make again just pull back a little on the red pepper and the Old Bay, not a lot. Read More

I followed this recipe to a “T” as we love shrimp and this looked like a great recipe. The amount of red crushed peppers was an overkill and was way to spicy for my guest. I love myself love spicy food but this recipe was Hot and is not for the faint at heart eaters. Next time I make this I will likely cut the crushed pepper to 1/4 of what is suggested. Read More
