It is not for, less, seafood and pasta have always married well, so this time and taking advantage of some prawns that I saw in the market at a good price, I started with them. You can prepare, as I have done, a delicious first course as well as a delicious way to eat some prawns.

We carefully add the whiskey and let it evaporate for a few seconds. Add the cream, stir and cook everything together for two more minutes, separating from the heat. Season with salt and pepper and add the lemon juice on top.
