The traditional Persian food, popular in Persia since the early 19th century, is often served with a rice bowl, sometimes called a biryanka, or a bread basket.

Here’s how to make a shrimp beshi from scratch: 1.
Peel, cut and thinly slice the shrimp.
In a large bowl, mix the marinade ingredients, salt and pepper.
In another bowl, stir together the butter and olive oil, garlic, parsley and lemon zest.
Pour the marinating mixture into the bread basket, sprinkle with the parsley, and add the shrimp to the mixture.
Cover the bread with a foil and leave to marinate for at least 2 hours.
In the morning, gently massage the marinated shrimp with the palms of your hands until they become soft and crispy.
In this way, the shrimp can become tender, which helps to keep them moist.
