    lol My wife made me scampi as well last night. Had it with chips--proper chips, not those anaemic looking French fries--with Tartare sauce.

    Not a lot people seem to know that scampi has only existed since WW2.

    Scampi is made from the meat of Nephrops norvegicus commonly known as the Norway lobster / Dublin Bay prawn / Langoustine. It is a crustacean and not a fish.

    Commercially produced scampi is often adulterated with cheaper white fish. This is despite Nephrops norvegicus originally being cheaper than fish, and the reason for inventing scampi was a way of commercially using them as they were previously thrown away by fishermen.

    I've heard that about scampi.

    Lobsters & oysters were also cheap food in the past.

    A science teacher told me similar things about scampi. He would eat scampi at home because he knew what he was eating but he would never eat scampi in a pub or a restaurant.
