Shrimp Scampi

In the USA, "scampi" is often the menu name for shrimp in Italian-American cuisine. 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.
