This was good, but I felt that it was missing something. Therefore, I seasoned and sauted my shrimp in a skillet instead of boiling them. Afterwards,I did place them in the bowl of butter for 15 minutes. I used fresh garlic and mushrooms. I sauted the garlic, onions, and mushrooms togehter. I used penne pasta instead of angel hair. All and all it was good, but next time I think I'll try making homemade alfredo sauce. But I will keep this recipe. ** Also, this was very quick and easy, which is a plus.


This is an easy and great recipe. My family loved it. Soaking the shrimp in butter made it better. I actually added a little bit of garlic powder to the butter, we love garlic! Thanks!!!


I came up with a very similar recipe to this on my own and I make it at least once a month - whenever I can get shrimp on sale. I use pre-cooked frozen baby shrimp, though, which makes preparation easier. Also, try red bell pepper instead of green for a slightly different flavor. Sometimes I add chopped roma tomatoes or sundried tomatoes, or frozen peas and shredded carrots. It turns out different, but delicious, every time. And people at work always think my leftovers look better than their lunch!
