Shrimp is always a celebration, a ritual and a waiting. The fact that Russia used to have with beer and without, is the Northern shrimp. It lives in the cold waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, apparently small and pink. But not them. Our interest today — large and medium-sized, fleshy and sometimes scary, but bloody delicious moregate, which is served in Moscow restaurants.
From the point of view of creativity, the dish is quite boring, but only quality, freshness and imagination are important here. Without these components — this is the story of failed expectations and broken hope. For this article, a lot of shrimp was eaten, five chefs and sommeliers were interviewed. After all, without a decent wine and rest in the restaurant is not the same.Did you know?
Many shrimp species are ideal representatives of hermaphroditism. Without social reproach for life to change sex from male to female.
The activity of the shrimp reaches a maximum at night. Day hide in the sand from any marine and terrestrial evil spirits, wanting to eat them.

Restaurant “Sakhalin»
Address: Smolenskaya str., 8 (Azimut hotel, 22 floor)
“Sakhalin” is saturated with the smell of luxury, in everyday attire here you may not be very comfortable. The Suite attracts the Suite, which is still within the Garden ring. The restaurant tends to four types of shrimp: Sakhalin sweet, Argentine, Carabineros and langoustines. Carabineros and langoustines are brought from different countries depending on the season.

Then the guest has the right to choose: eat everything raw or send shrimp on the grill. The second method ignores only the Sakhalin sweet shrimp because of its too delicate texture. The restaurant was given the same advice: to have a nice meal together without compromising the health, order two shrimp each. But the feeling is that it is unfairly small. Our advice: take more until the money runs out.

The “Ceretto sea” serves Magadan shrimp caught in the Russian waters of the Pacific ocean. They are prepared immediately on the ship: boiled in a special brine, calibrated, glazed, frozen and sent to restaurants. It is believed that each fishing vessel engaged in catching and cooking shrimp has its own special brine with a secret proprietary set of ingredients and spices. For the restaurant is only not to spoil the product, that is properly thawed, preserving the integrity of the shrimp meat, texture and taste. Rubber shrimp is a nightmare that will leave injury in the heart of anyone. In “Ceretto sea” is uniquely able to thaw, do not be afraid.

Magadan prawns with Yuzu mayonnaise are not a self-sufficient dish, but rather an appetizer, since the plateau is not very large. Immediately there is a thought to take something else, for example, Tartar from sweet shrimp with mango mousse. This time in the framework of Moscow restaurant week they sing the ode to them.

On the advice of a friendly waitress Bangladesh, wild and langoustine shrimp is better to take on the grill.
