how to make mantis shrimp au gratin


We clean the mantis shrimp leaving 4 whole aside

First clean the mantis shrimp, leaving 4 whole aside.

Procedure for cleaning the shrimp (see recipe): rinse them thoroughly under running water, then with scissors cut the head and tail, cut the legs and the appendages that are on the belly and also along the entire back of the shrimp, make two cuts side along the sides of the body and peel off the shell with your fingers so that only the tail and the pulp will remain. In one container we put the tails, in another the heads and scraps of the mantis shrimp.

In the pot of water for pasta with colander we put the fish scraps

Put the water for the pasta in a saucepan with a colander and add salt. When it comes to a boil, insert the heads and scraps of the shrimp to flavor the water. In a pan, put a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, crushed poached garlic and chilli, then add a few heads of the shrimp and continue to fry.

Let's prepare the dressing

Now, with a meat mallet, squeeze the heads so that they release their liquids to flavor the sauce, add the salt and sprinkle with a little white wine. We also add a ladle of pasta cooking water, a sprinkle of parsley and a little pepper to taste and cover, continuing to cook over low heat for about 10 minutes.

We drop the pasta

In the meantime, let's drop the spaghetti. At this point we remove the heads of the fish from the pan and insert the chopped tomatoes and when they are cooked, insert the whole mantis shrimp that we had set aside and cook over semi-high heat for a few minutes.

We blend the mantis shrimp with the white wine

Season with salt and blend again with white wine and, once evaporated, add a ladle of cooking water. A minute before draining the pasta, insert the tails, then insert the spaghetti, some more fresh parsley and toss everything.

Let's finish cooking and Buon Appetito!

We cover and finish cooking for another 15 seconds, then we go to serve. Serve with parsley and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
