What is Shrimp Scampi?
Scampi is technically a variety of lobster, also known as the Dublin Bay Prawn or Norway Lobster. Scampi are found in the Mediterranean and northeastern Atlantic oceans ,and is considered to be a delicacy. However, the term shrimp scampi is more commonly used to describe the preparation of any variety of shrimp with garlic butter, dry white wine, parmesan cheese and then served over pasta. These days you can even find dishes with names like "chicken scampi" or "scallop scampi" on restaurant menus.

I'm always a bit surprised at just how little time it takes to cook shrimp. It really is almost effortless, especially when you have high quality cookware like my Calphalon® Premier™ Space Saving Cookware Set. With a hard anodized aluminum body, you get super quick and even heating, which means your shrimp scampi will turn out perfect every time. And I love that the nonstick cooking surface ensures my shrimp will release easily (no sticking to the pan) and makes clean up a breeze.
Easy Shrimp Scampi
One of my foodie friends is getting married this month, and I am giving her a Calphalon® Premier™ Space Saving Cookware Set of her very own. With a copy of this recipe for Shrimp Scampi, of course. I think this set is an amazing wedding gift because the pieces are super durable, reliable, and really built to last....just like her nuptials!
And since she and her soon-to-be hubby are combining households, storage space will be at a premium. Which is why this Calphalon® Premier™ Space Saving Cookware Set is exactly what she needs, since you can stack and nest them in any order.** And the genius design (including flat glass lids!) saves 30% more space** than other non-stacking Calphalon® Cookware items when stacked with other Premier™ Space Saving items of the same diameter.
I just know she will be whipping up this delicious and easy shrimp scampi for one of their very first meals as a married couple.
