Shrimp ScampiWhile shrimp cocktail may be the centerpiece on appetizer tables everywhere, there are indeed more ways to prepare these two-bite beauties than simply boiling them and serving them with cocktail sauce. For something a bit more dressed up but still deliciously easy to prepare, look to shrimp scampi, a quick-fix classic that pairs garlic, lemon and often a splash of white wine with the tender shellfish. Most traditional scampi recipes call for relatively petite shrimp, but even the larger varieties don’t take more than a few minutes to cook, so it’s a must-try preparation when you’re pressed for time in the kitchen. Check out Food Network’s top-five shrimp scampi recipes below to find tried-and-true as well as creative takes on this favorite dish from Giada, Bobby, Ina and more Food Network chefs.
