National Shrimp Scampi Day is held on April 29, 2021. In the USA, “Scampi” is often the name for shrimp (actually “Srimp”) in Italian-American cuisine. The term “scampi” is also the name of a dish with shrimp in garlic butter, served with dry white wine and either bread, pasta or rice.
Most types of “Shrimp Scampi” are served on pasta. The word “scampi” is often only used to describe the method of preparation and less to indicate the content, so that there is a dish called “shrimp scampi”, which, however, uses the addition of “chicken scampi” to refer to chicken as an ingredient.
Scampi is the name of the Norway lobster in Italy and other Mediterranean countries. The term is used internationally today. If “scampi” are offered in the German-speaking area, however, it is often shrimp, of which the Norway lobster does not belong to the group. (With material from: Wikipedia)
