Shrimp scampi, shrimp cocktail, shrimp po'boys, shrimp ... earrings? Shrimp is all over your feeds right now in everything from elegant appetizers to trendy accessories. But one thing remains constant: shrimp is always a crowd-pleaser. Whether you're looking for a quick weeknight dinner or a dish to impress your guests, shrimp is a versatile ingredient that can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.

Chef Anthony Vitolo dropped by 'GMA3' recently to share his gamberi scampi recipe. While traditional shrimp scampi is made with white wine, Chef Vitolo's version is alcohol-free but still packed with flavor. By using fresh lemon juice and herbs, he brightens this classic dish and gives it a refreshing twist.

If you're looking to switch things up a bit, try using hearts of palm as a stand-in for scallops in your shrimp scampi. When sliced, hearts of palm have a similar look and a briny quality reminiscent of seafood, making them a perfect complement to the juicy shrimp.

For those who prefer a more robust flavor profile, garlic shrimp in a Creole seasoning butter sauce might be just the ticket. This easy recipe is ready in no time and packs a punch with its bold blend of spices and aromatics.

Fact: Juicy shrimp loves a buttery, garlicky sauce. Even more so when brightened with lemon and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. This classic combination is a surefire winner that never fails to please.

For a unique twist on the traditional shrimp scampi pasta, try adding miso paste for an extra umami kick. The salty depth of miso pairs perfectly with the garlicky shrimp and adds a rich complexity to the dish.

Looking to impress your dinner guests? Fall in love with red wine-braised short ribs, cooked at a low temperature for hours until they are fall-off-the-bone tender. This fancy dish may sound intimidating, but it's actually quite easy to make and will leave your guests raving.

While Olive Garden is known for its Italian-American fare, the restaurant has served up a variety of dishes since it first opened its doors in 1982. Some of the restaurant's offerings may change over the years, but one thing remains constant: the love for shrimp scampi. With or without wine, this classic dish continues to be a favorite among diners.
