    Tastes okay. I ended up adding a small amount of butter to make it more like traditional scampi. Just about a Tbsp and it was delicious. - 5/15/17

    Make it all the time, I use half the fat and substitute butter (high in fat but worth it in my book) and add a splash of cognac or sherry. A little parsley, pour it over pasta, can throw in bell peppers or baby tomates too! - 5/15/20

    I added 1tbsp of ghee and used 1tbsp of lemon juice and 1tbsp white cooking wine in place of just the lemon juice to make the "sauce" more significant. - 6/5/21

    I love garlic, but that's too much. 1 or 2 CRUSHED garlic cloves is plenty to get the good garlic taste. I also use a mix of olive oil and a little butter, plus a splash of white wine, for better flavor. - 5/15/21
