Scampi With Lime Mayonnaise Dip

Nothing is better than Scampi…summertime…..deck/patio….friends….cold wine……


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2% thick yogurt
  • gated zest of 1 lime
  • dash tabasco
  • 1 lb. scampi, peeled and deveined

To prepare the dip, whisk all ingredients (not the scampi) together in a bowl until blended. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing the top into the surface to avoid a crust. Place in the fridge.

Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Place the scampi in a sieve and plunge into the boiling water for about 1 1/2 – 2 minues or until they turn pink.

Immediately plunge into a cold water bath to stop further cooking and pat dry.

Arrange on ice on a platter garnished with spinach leaves. Serve the dip in a cold crock alongside.

Dip and enjoy!
