The Best Baked Shrimp Scampi You’ll Ever Have

Looking for an easy dinner that aims to please and is super easy to make? Try this baked shrimp scampi recipe. It’s the best-tasting dump-and-go recipe out there!

You read that right…this is a recipe for baked shrimp scampi and it is outstanding!

My grandmother gave it to me before she passed and it is sooooooo much better than sautéing it over the hot stove!

My kids have always loved it, even when they were little, and you can even use the leftovers to make shrimp scampi flatbread pizza!

I make this Baked Shrimp Scampi recipe all the time because it is so easy, so good and a major crowd pleaser.

It’s quick to make, easy to clean up and easily modifiable.

Your guests are vegetarian?

No problem, substitute shrimp for tofu.

You prefer scallops to shrimp?

No problem, swap it out. 

It is not a red meat-type recipe, but I bet you could even swap the shrimp out for chicken breast if you cut it up into shrimp size pieces.

Because I love it so much I make it a few different ways.

It’s amazingly delicious, so easy to make and there is almost no clean-up!

One of my personal faves is this easy coconut shrimp tacos that I make all summer long.
