This prawns with honey caramelized beetroot, cilantro and yogurt recipe has been the fruit of an improvisation. I’m very happy with the result, because it is a very light dish. There are a multitude of flavors that combine wonderfully. In addition, it’s a dish that we will have ready in less than 30 minutes and it’s served tempered, which makes it a perfect and original entree to surprise our guests on holidays.
