Ibiza restaurants: Red Shrimp with Slow-Cooked Iberico Dewlap at Alabastro

Local Ibiza shrimp are some of the best in the Med and hip fine dining destination Alabastro in the chic five-star eco-resort Aguas de Ibiza Lifestyle & Spa is the best place to experience them. The stylish dining room is beautifully matched to the juicy, coral red shrimp served with slow-cooked dewlap, carrot and vanilla.

The vivid flavours of the shrimp are juxtaposed with the creamy melt-in-the-mouth pork dewlap (the cut of meat at the base of the chin – sometimes known as jowls). With guaranteed Iberico provenance, the meat is tender and sweet and perfectly balanced with the shrimp’s sea notes. Pureed carrot with a hint of vanilla and a drizzle of deeply rich gravy finish the dish exquisitely.
