Shrimp scampi is possibly one of the easiest meals to make. The biggest problem with the dish is overcooking the shrimp. I came across a post that suggested baking the shrimp instead of sauteing it in the butter garlic mixture. I was intrigued, so with little preparation and great flavor, 15 minutes later, dinner was on the table.
