Scampi In A Basket

They were discussing this topic on the radio this morning.  Apparently pubs will be stopping folk from eating Scampi in a basket as it is not considered as popular at it once was.  How could they stop?  I used to love going to the Riverside night club as a teenager and quite often we would have Scampi in a basket.  This was back in the 80's.  I even named my pet Chihuahua Scampi. Bless his heart. He went to doggy heaven a number of years ago. :(

Scampi in a basket was the best thing since sliced bread.:)

You mean they ate your dog in a basket?

Of course not! My dog was just named Scampi.

As quoted from wikipedia:

Scampi is a culinary name for some species of prawn, notably the 'true' scampi Nephrops norvegicus, and is also used as a name for a style of preparation of these lobsters and other seafood. In India, 'freshwater scampi' refers to the shrimp Macrobrachium rosenbergii.
