1. Prawns

Who doesn’t love prawns? Gather all the ingredients below and get ready to serve!

- 4 red prawns from Mazara del Vallo

- Micro watercress
- Micro basil
- Black dehydrated olives
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Raw whole salt

Wash and clean the prawns, then eviscerate them and season them with extra virgin olive oil and salt, then keep aside. With the help of a corer, make 5-6 avocado balls, grease them with extra virgin olive oil to prevent them from oxidizing, then keep aside. Put the olives in a dryer (60° for 3 hours) and then blend them until you obtain a powder, then keep aside. As a last step, compose the dish by alternating the prawns with avocado balls. With a fine-knit pass, sprinkle everything with the black olive powder, then decorate with the micro watercress and micro basil.
