What can I do with scampi?

Unable to resist a bargain, I bought several bags of frozen breaded scampi in a half price flash sale grin

I've used some of them for fritto misto with salads in the summer. I tried the suggested recipe on the packet of scampi Caesar salad. I shall not be trying it again... Scampi and chips is the obvious go to but it's a bit beige, even with homemade mushy peas.

What can I do with the rest of them? I have a feeling something with sweet chilli sauce would work but what? I suppose I could use them up for tapas style suppers...

Eat them! On the other note- where did you get them? I’ve never seen such flash sale,would love to stock up

That’s what you do with scampi.
They’re a breaded frozen food and therefore supposed to be beige. Don’t try to posh them up.

Have them with tartare sauce

Peas and chips!

Much nicer with chips and peas than a bit of breaded haddock from a box.

I like them with shredded baby gem lettuce, tartare sauce and lemon juice all over.

Warm soft flour tortilla, lettuce, mayo and sweet chilli sauce, it's a lovley alternative to chips!

Thanks, everyone! It looks like the consensus is there isn't anything very exciting to do with scampi other than a wrap, and chips, chips and more chips are the best option grin

As a starter with a chilli dip ?

Cook them & the chips, put them in a basket with a wedge of lemon and a sachet of Tartare Sauce and rock the 70's vibe!
Snowball or a Babycham to wash it down . . .

A plate of bits. Scampi, garlic bread, some cheese, tomatoes, bit of ham, some mayonnaise and anything else you fancy.

A nice weekend treat while relaxing in the evening.

I just eat them dipped in tartare sauce or mayo (I usually add something to make my mayo a bit more like tartare sauce)

Serve in hotdog buns with lettuce, tomato, pickles and seafood sauce.

Dc like 'fishy tea' night. Basically a fish platter with scampi, calamari, spicy king prawns, some cod or haddock, muscles with some savoury veg rice

Surf and turf. Scampi and steak with some fancy wedges.
