| Shrimp scampi became popular after World War II but there is not one set recipe. The most popular version in America usually includes shrimp, garlic, lemon, olive oil, and other ingredients. Scampi is actually the plural for the word scampo, which is shrimp. So when you order this dish it’s like saying shrimp shrimps(or something like that). Most Italian restaurants in Las Vegas feature this dish as an appetizer but it is sometimes served as a main course with a side of linguine or fettucini.
