How to marinate prawns : 3 tasty keto-proof-recipes

Marinated shrimp is terribly tasty and is an ideal healthy tapa for the holidays. On a skewer on the barbecue, in the oven or just baked in a pan, we love it! But what are the nicest ways to marinate these delicious crustaceans?

Which shrimp to use?

It is, of course, important which shrimp you will use. For example, gray shrimps are much too small to skewer and, for example, fit better in a salad or shrimp cocktail. So rather take the larger ones, such as scampi or prawns. We prefer to marinate scampi because they are perfectly sized and only have a tail, which means less work to peel them and saves you a lot of time.

How long do the prawns need to be marinated?

Marinate prawns for a least 30 minutes. In general: the longer you marinate, the better the flavor. Pour the marinade in a sealable plastic bag, add the shrimp, seal, and hustle well. You can easily place the bag in your fridge.

3 ways to make an incredible marinade

Prawn goes classic

Make a marinade of olive oil, fresh chopped parsley, lemon juice, chopped garlic cloves, a little tomato puree, dried oregano, Himalayan salt, and black pepper. Keep some parsley for garnish on your plate.

Hot & spicy prawn

For this spicy marinade, mix lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, finely chopped garlic, brown erythritol/monk fruit sugar, and spicy or mild (whatever you like) curry paste. Serve the shrimp with extra lime wedges.

Exotic prawn

This marinade is an exotic surprise. Mix dark rum, olive oil, curry powder, a pinch of cayenne pepper, sea salt, coriander, and lime juice. It is nice to put the marinated prawns on a skewer with red pepper and cucumber cubes
