Italian Restaurant Makes Shrimp Scampi

by admin on April 3, 2010

Diners often think of Scampi as a style of cooking shrimp. It’s actually the plural for “scampo”, which is a shrimp.  Actually it’s the Italian word for the Norway lobster, also known as the Dublin Bay prawn.

However, you are probably expecting a combination of shrimp, lemon, butter, garlic,  and that is what you are going to get.

Chef Roberto uses U12 which means there are 12 shrimp to a pound.  First, the seafood is seared to a light orange color in hot oil.  Then he adds garlic, white wine, salt, butter, and a splash of lemon juice. 

The 2 keys to a delicious Scampi that most people don’t realize…let Chef Roberto explain in the video.

 Okay in case you missed it:

  1. Don’t over cook the shrimp or they get chewy 
  2. Don’t overcook the garlic or it completely changes the flavor

You can enjoy Chef Roberto’s cooking at:
