  • 1kg Scampi
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • lemon zest
  • 1tsp finely chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp of chilli flakes (optional)
  • olive oil
  • 1 lemon



Step 1

Preheat oven grill to 250˚C or a barbecue to high.

Step 2 

Slice each scampi in half, removing the vein – any easier option is to let us butterfly them open for you.

Step 3

Place scampi on a grill proof tray. Mix salt, rosemary, parsley, lemon zest, garlic and chilli flakes together. Sprinkle the season mixture over the scampi and drizzle with olive oil.

Step 4

Cook scampi over the grill for about 3 minutes – checking in to ensure the meat is cooked through.

Step 5 

Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice.
