Step by Step: Shrimp Salad

“Salpicón is a festive recipe that is prepared differently in all Spanish homes and restaurants. My mother used to embroider the prawn salpicón at Christmas and the brothers beat us in the face for sinking our teeth into it. This recipe is a tribute to all mothers and I gave it my touch trying not to spoil it, adding the touch of tomato sauce, mustard and mayonnaise, which form a stain which gives even more succulence to the material”. These are the words of chef David de Jorge about this tasty shrimp salad that he offers as a starter for Christmas menus.
