Do you like shrimps? I love them but I can't prepare. Have you any easy recipe for shrimps or other sea food? :)

here is a simple recipe - just a snack (served with beer :oops: )

1,0 - 1,5 litre of water for half a kilo of frozen shrimps pour into a bowl and leave to boil on a kitchen-range. when it starts boiling put into the water 6-7 pieces of black pepper, 3-4 bay leaves and salt about one tea-spoon. And boil it without shrimps in it for about 8 minutes to make the water spicy and steaming, then put unfrozen shrimps in it and boil for about 5-10 minutes after the water starts boiling again then leave with the unopened lid for about 10 minutes. Fish out the shrimps with a spoon and serve with milled black pepper. The packed frozen shrimps sold in shops are often half prepared already, I mean boiled, that's easier to use them.
also you may add shrimps into salads. Sorry, I'm so weak to make nice descriptions :oops:

The soup seams simply and delicious - just for me! But grilled shrimps- ye it's good idea but how to prepare them? Should I wrapped them in a special paper or sth like that? You know, I'm not so good in grilling (is it correct expression?) so I avoid to grill anything, even chicken!

What does "prosted" means? :?
