Giant Squid and White Bean Soup

Here I used two different kind of prawns or shrimps or whatever they’re called   One of them is the king prawn.


I peeled the king prawns and kept the skin.

I ate the prawns as they came.

I baked some bigger king prawns or Gambon and ate them.  I kept the skin and their heads, well, the lot.

I put all the skin or shell, legs, heads, tails; well, basically everything except what I had eaten in a pan and boiled that.

And kept the broth.

In a magic pan I put some olive oil, some onion and some carrot and lightly fried it

I think I might have added some green pepper, I can see some green stuff in the picture. It might be parsley.. God knows!
