Dive into Deliciousness: Celebrate National Shrimp Scampi Day at Russo's!

April 24, 2024

Mark your calendars, seafood lovers! National Shrimp Scampi Day is upon us, falling on Monday, April 29th. Here at Russo's New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen, we're ready to help you celebrate this delightful occasion with a dish that's both classic and incredibly flavorful – our very own Shrimp Scampi!

This isn't your average shrimp scampi. We start with succulent jumbo Gulf shrimp, ensuring a satisfying bite in every mouthful. These beauties are then sautéed to perfection, bathed in a light and vibrant sauce that bursts with fresh, zesty flavor.

The secret lies in the perfect balance of ingredients. We use a touch of Pinot Grigio, a crisp white wine that complements the sweetness of the shrimp without overpowering it. This is then combined with a vibrant lemon and garlic base, a timeless combination that forms the heart of any good scampi dish. Don't forget the capers! These tiny pickled buds add a delightful briny touch that cuts through the richness and keeps the flavors lively.

Finally, we nestle the succulent shrimp in a bed of fettuccine pasta. Made with the finest Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil, this pasta boasts a silky texture that perfectly absorbs the delicious scampi sauce. Each forkful is a symphony of textures and tastes, making this dish an absolute delight.

Whether you're a longtime Russo's fan or just discovering our culinary creations, National Shrimp Scampi Day is the perfect excuse to indulge.  So come on down to your nearest Russo's and experience the magic of our take on this classic Italian-American dish.
