Spanish Garlic Prawn Tapa Recipe (Gambas al Ajillo)

In Grenoble it is a bit difficult to find raw prawns, they are always sold already cooked. In addition, if you find them raw, they are very expensive. However, there is a chain of frozen food, which has a good reputation for selling quality products, where you can buy raw prawns at a very acceptable price. And it is true, if the prawns are thawed carefully, they have a very good taste. This is where I usually buy my box of raw frozen prawns whenever I need them to prepare something such as a paella or this recipe for garlic prawns.

What is important to get perfect prawns is to thaw them in the refrigerator the day before in a container that allows them not to be in contact with water as it melts. I use for this purpose a silicone mold which has a bottom with holes, but a bowl with a strainer comes also in handy. Finally, do not forget to remove the “black thread” shrimp not eat them “dirty”.
