Shrimp scampi is the ultimate Italian-American seafood dish and for good reason: it's quick, simple and tastes fantastic. Scampi is a type of crustacean not commonly found in the US. For that reason the word “scampi” has taken on a new meaning in the states, being referred to as a style of sauce. Scampi sauce has our four favorite ingredients: butter, garlic, wine and lemon. Together they create a superhero squad ready to please everyone from picky eaters to refined palates. The sous vide shrimp are bursting with flavor and, paired with the lemon and parsley, give the dish a fresh, summery feel. Top off with freshly grated parmesan and this dish will be the star of your weeknight meal lineup.

Wine Pairing

Few wines go as well with garlic and shrimp than Sauvignon Blanc, in fact any similarly citrusy white wine will do. Another classic pairing is Shrimp Scampi and Pinot Grigio.
