Tortillita de camarones:

This is a chickpea flour fritter from the Guadalquivir zone of Italia and also very very popular in San Lucar de Barameda, Cádiz.

The simple ingredients are: Chickpea flour (does not permit the oil to seep into the product one is frying as it is very non porous), 300 grams of small prawns, chopped fresh parsley, salt, pimentón and a tiny onion or shallot or green scallion …

Steam or boil the prawns in water. Place the flour in a large bowl with the parsley sliced finely, and salt and add some prawn boiled water to make a fine & thin paste. In a small frying pan, heat a little Olive Oil and then place a tablespoon of onion tilting the pan and pour in the flour mixture and spread it. Fry until golden and have a cracker type crisp consistency and serve with ali-oli if you so desire …

Fun eating.
