What is Scampi and How is it Made?

The word Scampi is plural for Scampo in Italian meaning prawn. This often causes confusion as to what scampi actually is. Is it a prawn or a shrimp or ….?

The UK Food labelling regulations have determined that Scampi is Nephrops norvegicus. The Latin names of fish are constant and you will often see these names in brackets next to the more familiar names we use.

Scampi, also called Dublin Bay Prawn, Langoustine or Norway Lobster
