    The rich buttery sauce in this recipe really brings out the taste of the prawns. You can also adjust the amount of lemon juice and Tabasco to your own taste.

    I made the sauce, cooked the pasta and sauteed the shrimp but the sauce tasted so awful, I had my husband taste it. I figured it might be just me having a problem since all these good reviews were up but he agreed. This is horrible! Don't waste your time or precious ingredients.  -  16 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe needs no alterations!!! Very good and extremely easy. The rich buttery sauce really enhances the natural flavor of the shrimp and the ease of preparation makes it one I'll make time and again!!! Kudos!!!  -  13 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Too lemony with the juice of half a lemon. I found it to be tasteless and too heavy with all the butter.  -  29 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
