This is so good! I tried the recipe as written the first time and agree that a bit more sauce is needed. So the second time I made it I increased the sauce ingredients by 1/2 and it was plenty. I used a prepackaged frozen seafood medley in place of all shrimp and it was wonderful. I also think the pepper amount was fine. It is peppery but after all, the recipe is for "Shrimp Lemon PEPPER Linguini". I can see though how some taste buds might think it is too much pepper. Overall, this recipe is a winner. It is definately restaurant quality and definately good enough to serve to company. Read More

The overall taste of this dish was good. There was way too much pepper for my husband & me --we had to rinse the food off and start over. I would recommend adding the salt and pepper to taste and not following the 2tsp given in the recipe. Read More

Unfortunately, I did not have any linguini on hand and had to use spaghettini. I strongly do not suggest changing the pasta. This is truly a recipe best reserved for linguini or any other wide pasta and nothing else. I will try and use less lemon zest next time since I prefer a more 'shrimpy' taste than a 'lemony' one. This, of course, is just a personal taste though. This was an especially tasty recipe and one everyone should try! Read More

Delicious and EASY. I followed other reviewers suggestions and increased the amount of sauce ingredients and it was perfect. I've made this three times now. The second time I grilled the shrimp on skewers and the third time we used grilled chicken breast in place of the shrimp and it was fabulous.It's very light and perfect for summer. Top it with some fresh grated parmesan cheese and some fresh tomatoes on the side and you have the perfect meal. Thanks for a wonderful recipe skini! Read More

Short and sweet...this was excellent. Enjoyed preparing this nearly as much as I enjoyed eating it. Didn't measure anything (takes the fun out of cooking!), just cooked to my heart's content. Fresh, basic and exquisite ingredients. Beautiful dish. Simply perfect. My tummy is a happy camper tonight. Read More

Really good and really quick! This was my first time cooking w/ shrimp- and I even cheated! I bought a big bag of precooked shrimp. I thawed them in water them warmed them through in the oil/garlic sauce. I did not have any wine just did w/o. We didn't even miss it! Read More

I thought the amount of sauce was perfect. It tasted great, but I have to admit we were sweating pretty soon after we started eating. I'll definitely make it again, but I'm going to use less pepper next time. Read More
