While excess water escapes, put on the fire water with a volume of about 2-3 times more than the volume of the main product. Salt it and boil it. Add the juice of half a lemon, then dip the shrimp into it and cook after boiling for another 7-10 minutes. However, remember: the smaller the size of the product, the faster it cooks.
Various spices can be used.. A standard set is made from salt and lemon juice, but lovers recommend still adding 4-5 pieces of cloves, the same amount of peppercorns, bay leaf, a head of garlic, cut into 4 parts and one teaspoon of paprika.
- Readiness can be determined by the color of the shell, if it has become translucent - the shrimp is ready. And watch the time, overcooked shrimp will become rubber.
