Excellent recipe. Easy to make and the flavor is outstanding. Even my picky kids enjoyed it! I added a handful of chopped fresh rosemary into the marinade as suggested by another reviewer (great way to use the rosemary leaves since you have to strip it off the stem to use for skewers), otherwise followed the recipe as indicated. Served the Shrimp Skewers with a cup of CL Summer Corn and White Bean Soup and warm and crusty Rosemary Bread (store bought).

This was an excellent entree for my husband's and my Valentine's dinner. It was so yummy, my husband said they were as good as any shrimp he'd ever had at a restaurant. I had no fresh rosemary so I used bamboo skewers, but added some dried rosemary to the marinade. I wasn't careful about lining up the shrimp just right on the skewers, so I ended up with one shrimp that didn't brown on one side. Oops. Even so, they were wonderful.

We made this as written and unfortunately it wasn't my favorite. I think the rosemary flavor was far too overpowering for me. My husband seemed to like it okay, but I doubt I'll make again. Too many other CL shrimp recipes that I like better.

We love shrimp scampi and I have made it all different ways. We use a lot of fresh rosemary and loved the flavor! This recipe is amazing and the skewers look so elegant on the plate. Our new favorite...thanks!

I made this for our Memorial Day barbeque, very tasty and interesting. I used several long rosemary sprigs as skewers and cooked on the grill which I think has more flavor than a grill pan. The rosemary skewers gave the shrimp a subtle rosemary flavor that paired well well with the simple marinade. I am going to make these again next weekend for our supper club.
