With the recent olympics, I remembered the good times full of good moments I had spent in England, when I worked summers in a super hotel on the Dorset coast. The chef was preparing for lunch, these large shrimp or prawns crumbed in the form of coated prawns called shrimp scampi. They were very, very good and as a result, I’ve been wanting to try it out myself. The result is rather nice.
