Now you can make breaded scampi at home with this easy to follow, tried and tested family recipe. This recipe uses the traditional langoustine shellfish, also known as scampi and Dublin Bay prawns. Langoustines are closely related to lobster but are about the size of a crayfish. Serve with chips and a wedge of lemon, or some freshly gathered samphire.
When deep frying in a saucepan, always practice safety first and have a damp cloth or fire blanket near the cooker to smother an oil fire; never use water. Do not leave the kitchen when deep frying and always keep an eye out for smoke.
