Spanish term or phrase: Gamba rayada
A seafood menu includes this dish. The Latin term is, I think, Pandalus Montangui. Shall I just opt for "striped shrimp or prawn"?
Thanks

I think this is probably the most accurate rendering. Yes, you're quite right. As far as I know, the "gamba rayada" is only caught along the coastine from Denia up to Vinaroz. Thanks again for your help!
