This was a very simple & tasty dish. I did sprinkle a little Old Bay seasoning over shrimp. The person who added more chili powder must not have used the red pepper flakes. There definitely is a difference. Very good - YUM. Will make again.
Live in South Louisiana, so we know our shrimp, no more boiled shrimp, this is so much better. Used real butter and red pepper flakes instead of ground. Added powdered garlic and crumbled feta cheese and it was really good!
Very good. It's hard to beat butter, lemon and garlic with shrimp. I can't bring myself to cook with light butter so I used regular butter. I know that increased the calories and fat, but it was worth it. We had this with rice and salad and it was fantastic. The portion size is laughably small, but even with the butter it is still healthy enough to have more than one serving. I will certainly make this again.
This is the BEST recipe we've had in a very long time. It's quick, tasty and best of all low in calories. We did however serve it over Chinese noodles which one must consider but it's still low calories. We love the lemony garlic flavor. Of course leftovers if there are any are simply delicious.
