EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
Here we are with another fish recipe, also this one very simple: shrimp in a pan.
The preparation time is very short, as the shrimps in the pan should be just sautéed, otherwise they cook too much and would lose much of their flavor.
This dish can be served as an appetizer, but also as a main fish course.
SHRIMPS IN A PAN
Ingredients for 4 people: 80 g butter – 40 ml extra virgin olive oil – 60 ml dry white wine (or apple vinegar) – 20 prawns – 3 tablespoons parsley – 2 cloves of garlic – 1 chopped chili pepper – salt and pepper – a little lemon juice
Let’s start by cleaning the fish: rinse the prawns under cold running water, remove the head and then cut off all the legs, so you will break the carapace very easily to extract the whole tail. If you see the black strand of the intestines pull it out, otherwise with a sharp knife cut the back of the tail and remove it.
This procedure is very important because the intestinal filament is very bitter and spoils the taste of the dish.
In a large pan melt the butter in extra virgin olive oil, and fry the prevoiusly chopped garlic and chili, stir and let flavor for a few moments. If you prefer, you can also add a few drops of lemon juice to the aromas: its scent will exalt even more the flavor of the shrimp.
Add the peeled shrimps and cook, over medium heat, for 2 minutes on one side, then turn them over, blend with white wine (or apple vinegar) and, after lowering the heat, cover with a lid and cook for another 3 minutes.
Add salt, pepper and the previously chopped parsley and stir well to mix.
Enjoy your meal!
