Preparation of prawns with lard


  1. If you have chosen to use frozen prawns, defrost them and clean them by removing the shell, tail and head .
  2. Also carefully remove the intestines of the prawns, cutting the back and removing the "black thread" inside.
  3. Wrap a thin slice of lard around each prawn , taking care to wrap it completely.
  4. A sprinkling of pepper on the surface and you're ready to bake at 180° for 9 minutes in a hot convection oven (in a static oven it could take about 10-11 minutes).
    Tip: If you also have the grill mode available, don't be afraid to use it for an extra touch of crunch.

Is it true or not that these prawns with lard are spectacular?
