Preparazione gamberi con il lardo


  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 180u00b0 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.
