Scampi is the name for a style of preparation typically for seafood, and is also used as a culinary name for some species of prawn. In Ireland, the United Kingdom and the USA, the word has come to define the method of preparation rather than the ingredient, although referring to quite different methods. The term "scampi", by itself, is also the name of a dish of shrimp served in garlic butter and dry white wine, served either with bread, or over pasta or rice. The word "scampi" is often construed as that style of preparation rather than an ingredient, with that preparation being called "shrimp scampi", and with variants such as "chicken scampi".
