Classic Grilled Scampi with Garlic Bread

Scampi is one of our favourites, it goes well with almost everything and tastes absolutely extravagant. No matter the season, scampi on the grill makes dinner fun for the whole family since its the Icelandic version of eating ribs, in our opinion 🙂

We highly recommend serving this recipe with a salad of your choice, Salties Garlic Bread, Lemon wedges, and ice cold white wine.
