Specialty Food Shops in Louisville are an Outing Worth Planning

Louisville boasts several fish markets and meat shops that offer fresh shrimp. A visit to a specialty food shop is usually an educational and fun event all on its own. If you are an inexperienced cook, tell the counter staff your meal plan and they may have tips to enhance or improve your outcome.  A wonderful benefit to putting shrimp scampi on your menu is that it is a dish that can be prepared well with frozen shrimp, too. If you don't make it to a counter where you can purchase fresh, you will be fine with frozen.

Celebrate this Little Known "Holiday" with a Night Out

If you are inclined to dine out midweek, Louisville has no shortage of restaurants with shrimp scampi  on their menus.  Yelp and Urbanspoon are your friends in this situation.  Finding a restaurant in your own neighborhood or in an area of Louisville you have been looking for a reason to visit is easy with these tools.

Don't forget to dust off a copy of Forrest Gump for your post-dinner entertainment on National Shrimp Scampi Day.
