Look no further for the quickest shrimp supper— or the best fare to be served with toothpicks at your next cocktail party. “Scampi” traditionally refers to a specific type of shellfish, but in North America the term has come to mean a garlicky, buttery sauce for shellfish. Because of the butter and oil in this dish, we recommend only using frozen peeled and deveined shrimp. Peeling them after they’re cooked can get messy.
