Burrata Cheese Appetizer with Prawns Step by Step

  • Clean the prawns perfectly.
  • Blend the Burrata cheese in a mixer with 4 tablespoons of mineral water, 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and black pepper.
  • Cook the prawns in a pan, with a spoon of extra-virgin olive oil, a clove of chopped garlic, four sprigs of thyme, salt and pepper. If you want to add more flavor to your recipe, cut the shrimps' heads  and crush them with a chef's spoon to get their juice out. Cook for two minutes on low heat. Then get rid of the heads.
  • Pour the Burrata cream into four soup bowls; place the prawns above it, add the gravy obtained from cooking and a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Grate some lime peel on the dish and serve with a couple of slices of baked bread.
