Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp Scampi is a shrimp dish marinated in olive oil, fresh chopped garlic and lemon butter drizzled with a garlic lemon butter and caramelized chunks of tasty garlic, a Hawaiian classic that is a must try when you visit this beautiful island. This island dish was popularized by Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck at Kahuku located in the North Shore of Oahu Island.
A dish that started with humble beginnings from a converted 1953 bread truck parking along the Kamehameha Highway up to what is now an iconic and multi awarded dish known to locals as well as people who visited Hawaii. Now they own the land where the parked their food truck and have a set up its own building.
While I have visited Hawaii a couple of years ago and it will be on the top of my to visit list again, seafood was amazing and the place is just so lively, not to mention food like this. Now I am missing this dish so for today we will be making them home and you will be surprised how easy they are, in 15 minutes you will have a very delicious dish which I suggest eating them with your hands and without utensils at all.
I had scampi in NZ and I found that they were not as sweet as the prawns we have here. I wonder why. My missus cooked with garlic too. Nice though, just that ours here are nicer. Hehehehehe!!!!
My mother use to make Gulf shrimp like this. So very simple and so tasty. Just wish I could find some beautiful shrimp like this to make this dish. Yours looks scrumptious!
