No flavor. Terrible recipe

I cut the oil to 1 tablespoon, saving the fat. Sauteed the garlic first, the added the shrimp. Cooked as directed adding lemon pepper, kosher salt, and a little hot pepper flake. I also used the juice of one lemon. It came out very lemony, but we sort of lost the garlic a bit. It also dressed the pasta very nicely. Overall a good starting place for a novice seafood cook.

I believe a white wine as in a chardonnay should be added to recipe and possibly a little chicken stock I feel the recipe lacks a sauce like consistency which when it is put on the Posta it is dry...

Instead of complaining about the spices or lack of ingredients to make a sauce, create one of your own. If you don't like cumin, add basil or Italian seasoning if you like that. Or any spice that you do like. If you need some sauce, add a bit of butter and garlic, shallot or onion (scallions would work also) and a teaspoon of finely grated lemon zest to the oil, then add some pasta water to round it all out. Maybe a splash of white wine, if you are inclined that way... Become a bit creative and use this basic recipe as a starting point for your own tastes and creations. Be BRAVE!

There wasn't any sauce. The flavor was lost, no lemon flavor at all. I did like the crisp of the shrimp - that was different, but totally not what I was expecting from the recipe. It was mouth sticking dry, even after I added olive oil and butter to the spaghetti. It is a basic good recipe, it just needs to be worked up into something that matches the name.

VERY bland - only seasoning you can taste is the cumin. Was a total waste of the shrimp!

This was good, but there is very little sauce for the pasta. I think I will make it again, but will increase the amount of garlic and cumin and probably double the sauce.

I add sautéd onion and garlic to almost everything-cooked in butter. I followed everything else except for adding a little more butter and McCormick’s Grillmates Roasted Garlic and Herb seasoning. My husband doesn’t like shrimp but he said it was about as good as any shrimp fish he’s ever had! Success!

I used all of the ingredients except the cumin.. I don't like the way it smells...I also chopped up a half Italian frying pepper and green onion and added it to the shrimp while cooking...it came out Fantastic!!?????????
