Shrimps Orzo


250 g of Orzo
100 g of Shrimps / person for a Starter Dish, 150 g for a Main Course
2 soup spoons of Freshly Cut Parsley
Salt and Pepper

For the Crustaceans Coulis:

500 mL of Water
225 mL of 35% Cream
2 soup spoons of Cognac
2 soup spoons of Olive Oil
1 soup spoon of Tomato Paste (preferently in tube)
1 Minced Onion
2 Minced Carrots
400 g of Lobster, Shrimps or Crab Shells (Ask to your fish seller)
A few Parsley Stems


1. Prepare the Sauce: In a casserole dish, brown the Onions and the Carrots. Add the Shells and the Parsley Stems.

2. When you get a good coloration, deglaze with the Cognac to detach the Cooking Particules (the Juices). After that, add the Water to the height of the Shells and the Tomato Paste. Reduce everything by half.

3. Pour the Liquid through a very thin sieve into another saucepan.

4. Add the Cream and reduce by half again.

5. Verify the Seasoning and reserve. It is very important to not boil it, but to only bring it to a boil with the Cream.

6. Cook the Orzo into Well-salted Water. Strain it, then rince it with Cold Water.

7. Heat the Crustaceans Sauce into a saucepan.

8. In the meantime, sauté the Shrimps in a frying pan with some Olive Oil, Butter, Salt and Pepper.

9. Carefully mix the Sauce and the Orzo. The Orzo musn't be too cooked, or everything will be too stodgy.

10. Serve into hollowed plates the Orzo coated with the Crustaceans Sauce, the Sauté'd Shrimps on top of the Orzo. Add the Cut Parsley and.... Bon Appétit!

11. Enjoy. (Watch out, despite appearances, you shouldn't overcook the Shrimps, because they will be too firms and even hard if you cook them for too long. You could even sauté them for a little coloration, then finish their cooking into the Sauce. Delicious!)
