Ingredients for las Cigalas a la Plancha

Elaboration of the Cigalas a la Plancha

  1. Wash the langoustines under cold running water to remove any grit residue.
  2. Pat the scampi dry with absorbent paper to ensure they are completely dry.

  8. Remove the grilled langoustines and place them on a plate.
  9. Season the scampi with salt and pepper to taste.
