Nuestro plato de la Gamba Roja de Denia

Eat Red Shrimp in Dénia

Dénia and the Red Shrimp, the perfect marriage. Both are treasures of the Mediterranean and jewels of the Alicante Coast.

This marvelous marine delicacy becomes the protagonist every time it is part of our tasting menus.

In Samaruc Restaurant we make with this delicate product several dishes but especially we became known for one dish in particular, the red shrimp in citrus and carrot marinade, prepared for the Red Shrimp contest in 2019 .
At Samaruc, we treat the red shrimp with the utmost respect and present it with the grace that only Ismael Bilbao knows how to give it. What dishes can you try? For example, the Stracciatella with truffle, dried fruits and Dénia Red Shrimp or the Red Shrimp with honey and blood orange marinade (a simple but very aromatic recipe).
What makes this delicacy so special?

The sandy bottoms, the marine currents, the depths determined and the plankton it feeds on? There are many factors that influence its quality!

In our gastronomic offer, we cannot fail to mention the elegance of this raw material.

Whenever we get the Red Prawn in the fish market of Denia or Xabia we dedicate a special place in our kitchen, so that it reaches the diner in an unforgettable way.
Its distinctive reddish color and elegant lines are the perfect combination to enjoy at Samaruc by Ismael Bilbao during any time of the year.
It is a real treasure of Denia for true lovers of good food! And every Foodie that comes to our wonderful coasts.
