What is Scampi?
Scampi means large shrimp or prawn, but in American cooking, scampi often refers to a shrimp dish sauteed with garlic in a lemon butter sauce. Scampi is usually a pasta dish where spaghetti or linguine is added to the shrimp.
When it comes to scampi, shrimp scampi is one of the most delicious ways to prepare shrimp and pasta. You can check out my shrimp scampi linguine recipe and also the plain shrimp scampi recipe. Both are utterly scrumptious!
Today, I am going to kick it up a notch and make seafood scampi. Seafood scampi is probably even better than shrimp scampi. If you love seafood, you will definitely love this as it’s loaded with shrimp, squid and scallops. The spaghetti pretty much completes the dish.
There are all kinds of mixed seafood or seafood blend in the market, but I bought a packet of Trader Joe’s Seafood Blend which includes shrimp, squid and bay scallops. You may also use mussels and/or clams in your seafood scampi. It’s totally up to you.
How to Make Scampi Sauce?
The scampi sauce is basically a lemon butter sauce. For my sauce, I used bottled clam juice to enhance the flavors of the sauce. You may also add a few tablespoons of white wine in the sauce to add an extra layer of taste and aroma to the dish.
