After visiting Italy in 2004, Michael and I discovered that scampi means shrimp in Italian. Since then we have referred to shrimp scampi as shrimp shrimp. :) Michael hates seafood and was working late last night, so I decided to take the opportunity to make myself some shrimp shrimp.
Here's what I did:
Sautee shrimp in butter. Remove shrimp from pan. Add the zest of one lemon and the juice of half a lemon to the pan. Add about 1/2 cup of white wine. Add in 1/2 shallot. Reduce, reduce, reduce until thickened into a sauce. Serve over the shrimp. yum yum yum!
