To serve, drain the pickles and arrange them on the plate with the king prawns and the leaves of baby lettuce, rocket, sorrel and shiso (Chinese basil).

In this recipe, thanks to the use of sous-vide, the marinating of the prawns is done more quickly and therefore we get more flavour from them. This technique also allows us to cook all the prawns perfectly and equally. In addition, if we use this technique for pickling, we accelerate the process, since the pickling penetrates the product more quickly thanks to the vacuum.
