Stage 1 - 5 min.
Take raw scampi, cut off the heads, and extract from the base of the tail the gut of the animal (otherwise this can give a bitter taste to your scampi).

It's a delicate operation, but the small video on right will show you the details.

Stage 2 - 10 min.

With another fork, dip wet scampi in sesame mix to completely coat them.

Note: if you use the same fork to dip in beaten egg and then in the coating, after a short time your fork will be completely stuck with egg and sesame.

Stage 9

Stage 12

Then serve stright away, possibly with herb salad which will add a little delicious acidity.

Remarks

Herb salad could be replaced by other sorts, but to keep to the spirit of the recipe, please use something fresh and slightly acid. A small simple salad with a lemon French dressing, or a salad of tomatoes and avocados diced small.
