Ingredients

20 - 25 raw king prawns with shell, without head

2-3 garlic cloves

2 onions

3 lemons

1 can ORO di Parma chopped tomatoes (425 ml)

1 handful rosemary, thyme and parsley

2 tbsp. butter

“Extra vergine” olive oil for frying

1 pinch cayenne pepper

Salt and pepper from the mill

Step 1: Preparation

Ingredients:

Onions, garlic, herbs, lemon, prawns

Skin the onions and garlic, finely chop the onions, and cut the garlic into thin slices. Wash and pluck the herbs, leaving a small amount of rosemary on the stalk to garnish your dish later on. Do the same with one lemon, which you can now cut into quarters. Simply squeeze the juice out of the other two lemons. Wash and pat dry the prawns. (If using deep-frozen prawns, plan 1-2 hours thawing time.)

Step 2: The Gamberi

Ingredients:

Olive oil, garlic, gamberi, lemon juice, salt and pepper

Their light pink flesh and unmistakable taste make king prawns a special delicacy throughout the Mediterranean region. Gamberi (singular: “gambero”) have been used in Italian cooking for centuries. Traditionally, they are prepared in the shell, so that their flesh stays so juicy. To prepare Gamberi Rustici, first heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the garlic. Then add the gamberi. Fry for a few minutes in the garlic oil before quenching with lemon juice. Add salt and pepper. Remove the gamberi from the pan and keep them warm in the oven (at the lowest temperature). You will need the pan later for the tomato sauce.

Step 3: The tomato sauce

Ingredients:

Onions, chopped tomatoes, herbs

Now it's time to make the tomato sauce. Luckily, you still have the pan with the garlic oil (and now with the gamberi aroma). Add the onions to the pan and sauté until they have a glazed appearance. Add the chopped tomatoes and stir in the fresh herbs. Allow the sauce to simmer for a few minutes over a medium heat.

Step 4: The final

Ingredients:

Butter, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper

Season your tomato sauce with butter, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper - and place on the plates to serve. Lay on the gamberi and garnish with rosemary and lemon quarters.

Buon appetito!
