    This recipe was awesome! The only revision I made was the amount of lemon juice added,I cut it back to about 1/2 the amount called for.I also added a smidge more salt once served. It was amazing how the flavor developed while I was eating it. It was very fresh,light & healthy tasting.Will make again - 1/16/10

    I agree with gardener108...a little too much lemon juice, but didn't hurt the flavor too much since the family was fighting over the last in the pan. Leftovers? I wish! - 2/9/10

  • This was fantastic! I put less lemon (only juice of 1/2 lemon instead of 2 lemons) and substituted fresh basil for parsely. I also used collosal shrimp. I came out excellent. - 7/15/11

  • I served this for a late lunch today for an impromptu get together, everyone loved it! I added some vegetable broth which I had simmered with the tails after peeling for more sauce. I worked great with the pound of linguine. I served 5 generous portions and have at least that much left over. - 10/31/10
