INGREDIENTS for 4 people
  • 12 shrimp
  • 4 oz roasted hazelnut , roughly chopped
  • 2 oz breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • salt to taste
  • frying oil
Preparation

Clean the shrimps by removing the shell and eliminating the black string from the meat (make a small incision on the back of the crustacean to take it out in an easier manner). When clean, start preparing the breading.

 

In a large enough bowl mix together the chopped hazelnuts and bread crumbs; beat the egg in a bowl.
Dip a shrimp in the beaten egg, covering it completely, and then pass it in the chopped hazelnuts and breadcrumbs. Lightly press the breading on the shrimp so that it sticks tightly on both sides.

 

Put each shrimp individually on a wooden toothpick (you can also use a toothpick or cocktail decorated, provided its wood).

 

When you have finished, bring the oil to frying temperature: dip the skewers in the boiling hot oil for a minute, then remove them and place them on paper towels to dry.

 

Add salt to taste and arrange on a serving platter.

 

For an elegant aperitif, try to arrange them already portioned (3 skewers per person) in clear glasses, and you can take them seasoned with mayonnaise and a leaf of fresh basil.
