Rock shrimps and prawns salad

Media_httpalexdevetyp_bwbtv

The weather has been extremely warm recently in San Francisco. Last week-end, I was supposed to cook a three courses meal for some friends, and it was so hot that I was really wondering what type of food we could have with this temperature. All kinds of ideas went through my mind, but I decided to create a very fresh salad, with prawns and rock shrimps. 

Rock shrimps are actually quite interesting to cook with. It can be very mushy and not good if you’re not careful. But if fresh and well cooked, it’s delicious. 

The recipe for this salad is very simple. For your preparation, minced some garlic and shallots, roughly chop some mint, and finely chop some cilantro. Throw the prawns in some boiling water with lot of pepper and some salt, after 2 minutes, remove them, and then throw the rock shrimp. One minute later, they’re cooked! Throw the prawns and shrimp in ice cold water. 

Mix some mache salad with the mint, garlic, shallots and cilantro. Add some pepper and salt. Add the shrimp and the prawns. Then add the juice of 1 lime. Add a little bit of olive oil. Salt. Done

This is a very easy and refreshing dish. 

Have fun!
