Preparation: / Preparación:

Let’s start with shrimp cleaning. You can buy the shrimps already cleaned, I prefer to clean them myself. Remove the hard shrimp’s lever and the yarn that they have on the outside (it is important to remove the yarn completely so you do not get sick). Wash with abundant water separately the cleaned shrimps and their levers. Simmer the levers with little water, we shall use their broth for the preparation of the sauce.

Peel the small shrimps.
Comencemos con la limpieza de camarones. Para esta receta tomo los camarones pequeños, ya que la salsa resulta mejor con ellos. Puedes comprar los camarones ya limpios, prefiero limpiarlos yo mismo. Retire la palanca del camarón duro y el hilo que tienen en el exterior (es importante quitar el hilo por completo para que no se enferme). Lave con abundante agua por separado los camarones limpios y sus palancas. Cocine a fuego lento las palancas con poca agua, usaremos su caldo para la preparación de la salsa.

In parallel, start cooking the pasta to be al-dente. To see how al-dente pasta is prepared, click here.

Peel the tomatoes, remove the seeds and cut them into medium cubicles. For the cherry tomatoes, only cut them in half. Put on a large wok with 2 tablespoons olive oil and crushed garlic. When the oil is warmed and flavored, remove the garlic and add the tomatoes. Stir well until the tomatoes start to melt and add the shrimps.

When the sauce is unified, add the shrimps’ broth; make sure you have removed its scum during simmering and decanted the broth. Stir well the sauce and regulate with salt and pepper. Remember to constantly stir the sauce at this point of preparation. When the sauce has become compact but still juicy add the boiled al-dente pasta there.
