STEP-BY-STEP COOKING RECIPE
Step 1
Rice and Shrimp Rolls
If the shrimp is frozen, thaw them in advance on the top shelf of the refrigerator in a colander set in a bowl. String each shrimp onto a wooden skewer, pushing it under the carapace from the side of the head to the tail. This one is necessary so that during boiling the prawns do not curl into a ring. Cook the prawns in boiling slightly under salty water, 4 min. Pour over cold water, then let the shrimp cool. Remove the shrimp from the skewers, clean the shell and head, remove the dark intestinal vein.
