It was in this reastaurant that I ate Gamba's prepared the way I like 'M utmost!
It surprises me that hardly any restaurant that I know of prepares them like this. I know a variant i used in the Japanese Kitchen but hey ok here comes the recipe (with some add ons):
Of course Gambas , Flour, Eggs, Slat, peper, Olive oil (to fry), Lemon,mayonaise (not the salty one), ketchup, whiskey or sherry.
First you make the fresh cocktailsauce by mixing mayonaisee, ketchup, tiny bit of whiskey (the amount is personal!). You could add a bit of cream.
Second, mix flour, eggs, salt and pepper (not too much salt+pepper!) till you have a sticky mix (that will stick to the Gamba's). To make sure the mix i sright use small amounts of either fisrt so a bit of flour, egg etc..
Okl when your sticky mix is ready Throw in the gamba's .
Heat the olive oil ( enough oil to let the gamba 'swim') till it has a fry temperature ( you can check by putting a tiny piece of mix in and see if it fries)
Put in the Gamba's in small portions till they get a light brown colour.
Serve warm on a plate together with slices of lemon and the 'cocktailsauce'.
This is absolutely my favourite recipe (and Spanish Tortilla)!
All the best,
