What is it that people have with seafood? I just can’t do without… Yet another addiction with no real desire to find a cure against it (like cheese, for example). Other just ponder about their creepy-crawly features. But I’m not going to dwell on those… So, let’s go on with this :-). I didn’t want to settle with the usual oliveoil-garlic-herbs mix and decided to go in another direction.
- shrimp tails
- orange juice
- cold butter
- maldon salt
- black pepper
- olive oil
- put a little bit of olive oil in a pan and cook the shrimp unto almost ready, take it out and wrap it in tin-foil;
- deglase the pan with cointreau, add the orange juice and let it reduce at least to half;
- add some cubes of very cold butter and whisk vigorously, so that the sauce thickens;
- put a spoonful of the sauce in a dish, and add on top the shrimp (I cut mine) adding the salt and the pepper on top.
