Cooking process

Marinated prawns

THE prawns marinated are a simple and very tasty appetizer also prepare for special occasions. For this recipe are ideal Argentine prawns, those large and fleshy, but you may possibly also use traditional shrimp. For this preparation the prawns must be shelled, to allow easier "cooking" the meat of the shellfish with vinegar and lemon juice, but to make them more spectacular I preferred to leave the heads and tails.

The marinated shrimp can be flavored to taste with citrus (orange or lemon), ginger or using herbs and spices of your choice, I chose the pink pepper, which is very aromatic and at the same time enhances the flavor of the meat of the fish without covering .

When you are about the preparation of prawns marinated have to keep in mind that this is a recipe that does not require a traditional cooking of fish, but a marinade, then a firing that occurs with vinegar and lemon juice, this means first of all that you will need some attention ask about the freshness of the fish that go to buy and secondly of the "cooking" times to be of 24 hours.
