Eat This: Shrimp Scampi at Peppe's Apt. 2

When you taste the SHRIMP SCAMPI at PEPPE’S APT. 2, you’ll remember why this dish is an Italian-American treasure. Fresh shrimp are coated in truffled breadcrumbs then seared on a hot grill and dressed with a garlic-lemon butter sauce. Swap the default sides for an order of spaghetti tossed with even more butter, garlic and olive oil and this perfect pair will make you sing “That’s Amore.”
