This is so good! I tried the recipe as written the first time and agree that a bit more sauce is needed. So the second time I made it I increased the sauce ingredients by 1/2 and it was plenty. I used a prepackaged frozen seafood medley in place of all shrimp and it was wonderful. I also think the pepper amount was fine. It is peppery but after all, the recipe is for "Shrimp Lemon PEPPER Linguini". I can see though how some taste buds might think it is too much pepper. Overall, this recipe is a winner. It is definately restaurant quality and definately good enough to serve to company.

Unfortunately, I did not have any linguini on hand and had to use spaghettini. I strongly do not suggest changing the pasta. This is truly a recipe best reserved for linguini or any other wide pasta and nothing else. I will try and use less lemon zest next time since I prefer a more 'shrimpy' taste than a 'lemony' one. This, of course, is just a personal taste though. This was an especially tasty recipe and one everyone should try!

EEEEE-YUM!! I didn't put in the full amount of pepper and I DID double the sauce. Such a wonderful, yummy recipe! This goes into my "favorites" book! Thanks skini.
