Preparing the recipe for prawns with lard

  1. First, wash and clean the shellfish. Carefully remove the shell , taking care to leave the tail intact; you can choose whether to also remove the head or leave it.
  2. In any case, try to remove the entrails , or the dark filament that crosses the tail. Pierce the back of the crustacean transversally with a toothpick and lift, in this way the filament will be discovered and you can easily remove it.
  3. Take the slices of lard, which must be thin, and use each one to wrap a prawn , leaving the tail (and the head if you decide to leave it) free.
  4. Take a non-stick pan and pour a drizzle of oil into it. Position the prawns, so that the end of the lard is facing downwards, so as not to open the shell.
  5. Cook over high heat for a couple of minutes on each side and season with a handful of salt. Once cooked, turn off and serve.
