Shrimp scampi is an Italian-American dish based on Italian techniques used to cook scampi. Scampi is a small European crustacean that is like a tiny lobster. They are also known as Langoustines. When Italians immigrated to the US they used shrimp, as it was easier to find, but kept both names for the dish.
Tender pink shrimp cooked to perfection with garlic, butter and white wine. Served over a pile of pasta or with some crusty bread to soak up all that delicious sauce. Mix things up a bit by using browned butter, serving over some rice, or with roasted potatoes. Or stick with the classic and a fresh salad or tender haricot verts.
April 29 is National Shrimp Scampi day in the USA.
