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.

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 thought this recipe was great because it’s fast and easy. I had dinner ready with 20 min. The kids loved it. The flavor was good and it was very satisfying. I’m not a huge lemon flavor fan, but this is a keeper. 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 is a great recipe!! I didn't have any red pepper flakes but otherwise made the recipe as the site shows it. It was great; just spicy enough. It is low in points so a win for us!! I will be making it again. Read More
