Scampi Diabolo is truly amazing and yet can be made inside 15 minutes – culinary fast food in other words. The descriptor Diabolo, Italian for devil, refers to the great color and fiery flavor of this dish. Scampo is Italian for a small species of lobster that occurs in the Atlantic and part of the Mediterranean: nephrops norvegicus (Norway lobster). The French call them langoustines. In contrast to what many think, scampi (the plural of scampo) are not (king)prawns. Some restaurants mistakenly have king prawns or other large prawns on the menu as scampi. However, due to overfishing real scampi became very scarce at a certain point in time.
