Scampi Buzara

This is not just any shrimp dish – it's the shrimp dish. Croatian shrimp, or škampi na buzaru is an authentic Croatian meal. The shrimps from Adriatic Sea are a special kind; they taste like no other and if you spice them up the right way, you are going to get the most perfect meal! The dish originates from the times of the Venetians on what is today Croatian territory. They prepared shrimps (they called them scampo) in a pot which they called buzzara, so it kind of stuck with Dalmatian people and they named their favorite meal after it. The recipe is simple and the shrimps buzarra taste best when prepared fresh-out-of-the-sea. They are best paired with polenta or homemade white bread. Oh, a glass of white wine with it won’t hurt either.
