Shrimp Scampi Style
Also called langoustines, scampi are tiny crustaceans with pink shells. Italian cooks in the United States replaced shrimp with scampi but kept both names for the newly-born dish.
Since then, the shrimp scampi has been appreciated by many and has seen numerous creative versions. The Christner’s shrimp scampi is cooked with garlic and lemon, served alongside gratifying angel hair pasta.
Last, but certainly not least, we have Christner’s fried shrimp. Served with onion rings and cocktail sauce, the southern classic is crunchy on the outside and bursting with flavor within.
