When we think of classic recipes that never go out of style, shrimp scampi always tops the list. While this is one recipe you can enjoy any day of the week, there’s no better day than Thursday, April 27th, to celebrate. Why’s that? Because it’s National Shrimp Scampi Day! Traditional shrimp scampi features succulent shrimp sautéed in olive oil (with garlic, onion and white wine) and served with bread or over pasta. However, who said you had to limit yourself to the customary recipe? There are so many different ways to prepare and present shrimp scampi, like in a cheesy dip, on grilled skewers, in a creamy risotto mixture or over a fresh pesto couscous. Head out to your favorite seafood restaurant to celebrate Shrimp Scampi Day, or try your hand at home with one of these unique recipes we’ve rounded up.
