Prawns and Sea Bass in a Salt Crust

Our favorite shellfish baked in salt are the red shrimps, that live in the Ionian Sea and in the South Seas, and they are slightly sweeter than the normal ones.

If you are planning a trip to Apulia – Puglia, don’t miss out testing  the most delicious Gamberi rossi al sale (red shrimps baked in salt) at the Restaurant “La Puritate“, in Gallipoli.
