Gambas a la Plancha

Comments: 0
 

Recipe

Raja explains that he cooks the gambas (shrimp) on a bed of salt because it preserves their moisture and keeps them juicy. Whatever the reason, his were some of the best.

Yield: Serves 2 to 3

Ingredients

  • Coarse sea or kosher salt
  • 1 pound large head-on shrimp in the shell

Directions

Heat a plancha or large cast-iron skillet over a hot grill fire or medium-high heat until hot. Spread a ΒΌ-inch-thick layer of salt on the plancha (or in the skillet). Lay the shrimp on the salt and cook until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve with plenty of napkins.
