To make Venere rice with prawns and courgettes start by cooking rice: fill a pot with plenty of water and bring it to a boil. Pour in the rice, salt and cook for about 15 minutes. Wash and peel the courgettes, then grate them with a grater with large holes.
In a pan heat the oil with the peeled garlic clove, add the grated courgettes, salt, pepper, cook them for about 5 minutes and then set aside the garlic clove and the vegetables. Clean the prawns: remove the outer rind, cut the tail and divide them in half lengthwise, remove the dark filament on the back. Put the cleaned prawns in a bowl, drizzle them with the oil adding the lemon zest, salt, pepper and a few drops of tabasco. Blow the prawns up in a hot pan for a couple of minutes blending with the lemon juice. As soon as the prawns have browned, turn off the heat and keep aside. As soon as the Venere rice is ready, drain it in a bowl, add the courgettes and mix them to mix them. We have chosen to plate the single portions of Venere rice with shrimp and zucchini as follows: take a plate and place a round pastry ring in the center, fill it with rice and press the surface with the back of the spoon to compact the rice. Garnish the rice by placing the blew up prawns on top with kitchen tongs. Carefully remove the pastry cutter and serve it!
