Wow, this was superb! It takes more time than a usual scampi, but the flavor was so much better and complex. It's definitely a keeper and repeater.
One change I will make, however, is the same as another reviewer suggested which is to replace the chopped roasted lemon rind with some zest I'll first remove before roasting the lemon. I think the flavor will be better dispersed as the roasted rind is tricky to chop. But otherwise, as my husband said, "this is one of the best pastas I've ever had."
This was fabulous! I used only one lemon, and I kind of sliced the zest off and then minced that (after roasting). My family loved it!
Loved this so much I'm back to make it again. I followed the tips of previous reviewers (thanks!) and used 2 lemons rather than one (I love lemon) and was careful to use only the zest rather than the pith/membrane.
I am not sure that the roasted lemon added more than would have been provided by fresh juice and zest but definitely added to the business factor. It was tasty but not going on my ‘must do again’ list.
