Southern Shrimp Scampi

with Herbed Kale Rice

Select Qty: Dinner for


Scampi can mean different things in different cultures.  In Italy, langoustines are often sautéed in garlic and olive oil. Italian immigrants in America swapped in shrimp, and from there a thousand variations were born. This dish, from Kim Severson, cooks quickly, and adds the Southern kick of red chili flakes, the goodness of kale and the nuttiness of basmati rice to the traditional garlic and lemon of scampi.
