Bisque soup with shrimp and finocchio
  • Peel the shrimp and put the shells, tails and heads in a bowl. Put the shrimps in another bowl.
  • Place a pot over high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the shells, tails and heads and sauté for 5 minutes until they turn bright orange.
  • Thinly slice the onion, one finocchio and carrots. Add them to the pot and sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Deglaze pot with white wine and brandy. Lower heat and cook until all of the alcohol evaporates. Add the chopped tomatoes, water, bouillon cube and paprika. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Remove pot from heat and beat with an immersion blender, until the shells dissolve.
  • Pass the soup through a strainer with small holes and press down on the shells until all of the liquid is removed. Transfer soup to a clean pot.
  • Place the pot over high heat. As soon as the mixture starts to boil, add the rice. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes, until the rice softens.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Thinly slice the remaining finocchio and add to the pan along with the shrimp for 3-4 minutes, until the finocchio is golden and the shrimp are cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and remove pan from heat.
  • Serve bisque in serving bowls and top with shrimp and coconut cream.
