SHRIMP SCAMPI Shrimp Scampi is a very quick, easy and sure-to-be-a-crowd-or-boy-friend-pleaser! Shrimp is an age- old small fish, eats as an appetizer or entrée, is quick to cook and can become fantastic with nearly any cuisine. If your Shrimp is not peeled, be sure to clean the “vein” out of the back, it is NOT pleasant to get into your mouth! Also be sure to not over cook your shrimp. It becomes very stringy and chewy. When buying shrimp, you will see 16/20, 21/25, 26/30 etc. These numbers reflect the size of the shrimp. This means that with a 16/20, you will have between 16 and 20 per pound you buy. I also recommend that unless you really know your seafood department, ALWAYS ask for the shrimp COMPLETELY frozen. Ask them to get it out of the freezer, make up any excuse. You want them frozen until you are nearly ready to cook them. You will also see peeled, tail-on, tail-off, IQF PD. Most times you want the IQF PD this means “Individually Quick Frozen, Peeled and De-veined”. You will also see Black Tiger, Mexican White, Mexican Brown, Alaskan Red Spot, Gulf and a few other names as well. These are referring to the kind of Shrimp they are. Serves 4
