•Ingredients for 4 servings: Black NestsTagliatelle, half avocado, half salad tomatoe, half green pepper, one fresh green onion, 90 ml of extra virgin olive oil, 20 ml of balsamic vinegar, salt, black pepper. 16 fresh prawns or little lobsters and 2 or 3 kinds of lettuce. 10 walnuts.
•Boil water in a big pot and when it starts boiling add a pynch of salt and a spurt of oil. Add the tagliatelle and let boil for 4 minutes (whatever your package says). Strain and add a bit of olive oil so that it doesn’t get sticky.

•Meanwhile wash the little lobsters (their size is like a prawn but look like lobsters. You can use prawns if you want).
•Prepare the dressing with the avocado, tomatoe, onion, green pepper, olive oil, vinegar, salt, black pepper. All veggies should be cut very tiny.

•Place the tagliatelle on the plate, add the dressing on top.
•Place the letucce over the tagliatelle (previously cleaned and dried), add some more dressing.
•Fry the little lobsters just a bit in a saucerpan with some olive oil and salt. (aprox 2 minutes).
•Peel the little lobsters, take their heads off and use them to decorate the dish. Put their bodies on top of the lettuce.
•Add some more olive oil to the saucepan used to fry them, strain and use it to pour on top.
•Add the walnuts in small pieces.

You won’t be deceived… Try it!!!

It looks delicious but I don’t like it when my food looks back at me. I’d shop that head off first :-p

Merry Christmas to you, too, my dear Núria.

I’ve heard of a tagliatelle salad, before. The recipe was Italian, and it contained fennel and white beans.
Anyway, I just think a tagliatelle salad is interesting. I like your version. Love walnuts.

Hi Emiline, thanks for your observations, it’s just that I went to a Restaurant and I had it for lunch… I liked it so much that I tried to reproduce it at home… the result wasn’t that bad ;-)
