tools required



preparation method

Select a grapefruit and orange of considerable size.

Squeeze the fruits to extract the juice and discard the membranes.

Using a small pair of kitchen scissors, cut off the legs of the shrimp and spray a little oil on the body to avoid excessive absorption of oil.

Heat a frying pan with oil on a medium high flame and cook the shrimps thoroughly on both sides for a minute and a half, till they start changing color.

In a small bowl mix the citrus juice and sparkling wine while in a comparatively bigger bowl add the shrimp, membranes and mint and toss it gently.

Take 4 separate glasses, divide the contents equally and pour the mixture of citrus juice and wine on top.
