Hey all... Having a massive craving for scampi... Curious as to others' opinions on the best. Hoping for a pretty traditional version, but am open to shrimp or scallops or lobster....
Thanks in advance!
I love the gambas al ajillo at Bar Pintxo.

I'm probably going to get flamed for this but Cheesecake Factory makes a decent scampi with really large shrimp, whole roasted garlic cloves and a lemony garlic beurre blanc sauce.
agreed, it's one of 3 things i will eat there.it's delicious.
interesting... im curious as to what the other 2 are...
first one is the crab rangoon, i could drink they sauce they serve with it.the other is a version of maple and sage glazed pork tenderloin.It's not a restaurant i like, but sometimes, it's what everyone else wants so i cave.
thanks for the recipe.i make them at home, as the primary food maker in the house, it's nice to have someone else make something sometimes.
Completely unorthodox / off the wall suggestion. Camarones Checo or Camarones Al Mojo de Ajo at Mariscos Chente.

that came to mind already, thanks!
i really am looking for a traditional prep though... however, i am going to mariscos chente on saturday... will see if that gets ordered :)
How would you define "traditional prep?"
garlic and white wine based... no funky additions (not that they aren't valid and good in their own right, but just not what i'm seeking right now).
Okay then...have you ever tried it at Vito's on Ocean Park? I think they would be a serious contender to scratch this itch.

thanks. will look into it!
