How do you prepare the dish?
The making of the dish can also be divided into two parts. For the first part, take a big bowl. Mix the lemon juice and the wine, add the oil (2 teaspoons) and mix it very well. Now add all the shrimp and toss them up to coat aptly. Then put the bowl in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Now, this would be a pro tip that would make the dish even tastier. You need to toss the shrimps occasionally. Don’t forget to drain well so that they are ready to cook.
For the second part of the recipe, take a non-stick pan, and put one tablespoon of oil in the pan, and heat it well. Now add the shrimps and stir fry them and let them turn pink. Sauté the shrimps well. When you feel that they are almost cooked, add the sliced lemon and turn off the oven. Add the bay leaves to the red pepper and toss them well. Season with salt and a pinch of sugar, sprinkle parsley and serve immediately.
