Angel Palacios explains how his recipe came about:
"I wanted to use king prawns as the feature of this dish, which are being bred at the Gran Canarian municipality of Ingenio. For this dish I was inspired to create my own version of king prawns in garlic sauce, reinterpretting a traditional recipe and fusing it with other ingredients, by adding fermented black garlic."
Ángel Palacios’ cuisine offers a culinary journey, harking back to traditional recipes, while searching out new products, using local Canary ingredients and new techniques, to hit on the mental palate of the diner. His brand Traddiction looks to play around with the senses, providing his food with a whole new experience.
Our 10th 'dish-enhancing' secret ingredient:
White king prawn,Litopenaeus Vannamei, is cultivated today under totally ecological conditions, in a sustainable fashion and with no added chemicals, in the municipality of Ingenio, to the southeast of Gran Canaria. Production is done without meddling in its breeding process, and with no emissions into the sea, thus protecting autoctonous species along the coastline. Gran Canaria’s climate lends itself perfectly to the breeding of such an exceptionally textured product.
