Spicy tomato scampi


  • 1 kilogram scampi
  • 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) saffron
  • 3/4 cup (180 milliliters) dry white wine, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) crushed red pepper
  • 1/3 cup (80 milliliters) breadcrumbs
  • 570 grams canned peeled plum tomatoes, chopped (with liquid)
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 milliliters) salt
  • 1/3 cup (80 milliliters) chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

  1. Wash the scampi under cold running water.
  2. Stir the saffron into the wine and set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and sauté just until fragrant, then add the breadcrumbs and stir.
