    This recipe is fantastic. It has the same great taste of shrimp scampi without all of the butter. I used white wine instead of the vermouth and I served it over some whole wheat pasta. Delicious! My husband loved it too. - 6/17/08

    hubby had to work a double, dinner was just for me, and boy did this recipe make that the best dinner in months. Awesome. I used a tbsp of extra virgin olive oil instead of the vermouth, as I am unable to have any type of liquor. I also used salt subsstitute. Just wonderful turn out. - 10/28/09

    I made this with cooking sherry instead of the vermouth, served it over angel hair pasta. My daughter, who does not eat shrimp, even liked it. - 2/27/08

    My husband and I LOVED it. Substituted regular white cooking wine and had it over white rice (bad I know) but we had it with a salad too and it was so YUMMY! - 3/4/08

    This was really good. However, I used chicken broth in place of the vermouth and I found that at high heat, the broth totally disappeared in a matter of seconds. I added a couple more tble. of broth and tried it on some of the shrimp. We liked it best without the sauce. - 3/21/09

    The vermouth certainly is optional--and instead of butter, I've successfully used Olivio spread, which is made from olive oil ---no cholesterol!
    Try some diced avocado in the mix. Delicious! - 2/27/08

    I made it but made a change to the recipe. I changed the vermouth to low sodium fish stock. I will definiely make this again. This was easy and tastes great, I paired it with whole wheat linguinie. - 2/27/08

    I thought this was a decent recipe but was a bit disappointed with the amount of sauce made. I wonder if my husband just kept it on the stove for too long. Thanks! - 11/3/08

    Absolutely delicious. I snuck(is that a word?) it by my husband. He loved it, and went for seconds. I still haven't told him it was a healthy version. That's our secret. I'm thinking of using the sauce for crab legs...Hmm,..Yumm.. - 2/4/10
