My Independence Eve dinner, shrimp scampi. Shrimp Scampi in Italian is redundant as scampi alone signifies that it is a shrimp of some kind. Gamberetti is the Italian word for this kind of shrimp. I bought the shrimp with head on down the street from a truck farmer. Jumbo, fresh Georgia-Carolina shrimp with the head on for only $10 a pound. I bought two pounds. Cooking the shrimp with the head on gives the shrimp a wonderful flavor.
