  1. Scampi

    Scampi is a culinary preparation of Nephrops norvegicus or a similar lobster such as Metanephrops. Scampi preparation styles vary regionally. While the United Kingdom legally defines scampi specifically as Nephrops norvegicus, other similar lobsters are considered scampi worldwide. Monkfish tail is sometimes illegally used and sold as scampi in the United Kingdom, contravening the Fish Labelling England Regulation 2005 and Schedule 1 of the Food Labelling Regulations 1996.
