Pointers from Rie

  • If you make it in a skillet (a small iron frying pan) and bring it to the table as it is, you can enjoy it sizzling hot.
  • If you use a small frying pan or a shallow pan, you can make it delicious even with a small amount of olive oil. Transfer it to a thick pottery so that it doesn’t get cold when you eat it.
  • The umami of the shrimp seeps into the oil, so you can eat it as is or put it on French bread.
  • Even if the remaining oil is soaked in bread or entwined with pasta.
