Langostinos a la plancha

Enjoy the Taste of Spain!

Griddled prawns (gambas a la plancha) |

Langostinos a la plancha, is a classic Spanish tapa recipe. Whole, unpeeled prawns are salted, then cooked quickly on a flat-iron grill.


  • 1 pound shrimp (20 to 25 count, heads on)
  • 1 large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Rinse shrimp and drain. Cut the lemon in half.

  3. Heat grill or cast-iron frying pan until very hot. Pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil and cover the cooking surface evenly with the oil.

  4. Place shrimp on the grill or in the pan, sprinkle liberally with salt. Squeeze lemon juice directly over shrimp. Turn shrimp over and sprinkle more salt and lemon juice.

  5. Shrimp should turn pink and shells should “brown” slightly when cooked. As soon as they are cooked, remove and place on serving platter. Garnish with lemon.

  6. Enjoy!
