A long standing tradition of Japanese culture, Matcha Green Tea is the highest quality powdered green tea available. Made from the nutrient-rich young leaves picked from the tips of shade-grown Camellia sinensis plants, Matcha Green Tea is steamed, stemmed, and de-vined before being stone-ground into very fine powder. Matcha Green Tea powder is then stored away from light and oxygen in order to preserve its brilliant green color and antioxidant properties. This miracle elixir has been consumed for over a millennium in the Far East, and is now considered to be one of the most powerful super foods on the market today.

Best Shrimp Scampi Recipes for National Shrimp Scampi Day (April 29)

Shrimp scampi is a wonderful pasta dish that includes the use of some type of pasta along with different types of shrimp. Usually, large shrimp are used for the dish although it is possible to make use of smaller or popcorn shrimp in the recipe. Along with the pasta and shrimp, the preparation of shrimp scampi generally includes such ingredients as butter, white wine and garlic.

While shrimp scampi is sometimes thought of as being an elegant dish, the fact is that a basic recipe can be prepared using a skillet and a pot for the pasta. After melting the butter in the skillet, the deveined shrimp are sautéed in the skillet. As the shrimp begin to firm and take on a pink hue, other ingredients are added to help create a thin sauce. One simple recipe for the sauce includes lemon juice, a dash of white wine, and green onions and finely chopped parsley to taste. Since the shrimp does not need to cook for very long, the sauce is only allowed to cook for another moment or two.

In the USA, “scampi” is often the menu name for shrimp in Italian-American cuisine (the actual word for “shrimp” in Italian is gambero or gamberetto, plural gamberi or gamberetti). The term “scampi”, by itself, is also the name of a dish of shrimp served in garlic butter and dry white wine, served either with bread, or over pasta or rice, although sometimes just the shrimp alone. Most variants of the “shrimp scampi” come on pasta. The word “scampi” is often construed as that style of preparation rather than an ingredient, with that preparation being called “shrimp scampi”, and with variants such as “chicken scampi”.

In the United States, National Shrimp Scampi Day occurs annually on April 29. [source: Wikipedia]
