These raincoated shrimp or prawns are a typical tapa at Spanish bars. The name refers to the coat of dough with which they are coated. Like any worthy tapa, these prawns are eaten with your fingers, accompanied by a glass of good wine or a cold beer.
Ingredients32 prawns (or shrimps) 125 gr. flour 2 eggs 100 ml beer Olive oil Water Salt
First let’s make the Orly dough (beer dough). Mix eggs, oil and salt. Beat well then add the flour all at once. Mix well and diluted with beer and a bit of water (if necessary). The dough must not be too thick; it must form a thin layer over the back of a spoon. Leave it to rest in a warm place about 2 hours before using it.
Remove the prawns from the oil; put them on paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve at once.
