Preparation time: 45 min
Cut the celery. Peel and cut the onion and the carrot. Cut the lemon in 2, for the broth. Zest it and press the juice out for the aigrelette. Idem for the salad. With the help of a mandoline, if possible, cut the fennel the thinnest possible. Same goes for the chives. Shell out the shrimp. Infuse the saffron in the cold white wine.
Start off by sweating the onion, the carrot, the garlic and the celery with a little bit of vegetable oil, on medium-high heat. Once lightly coloured, add in the white wine to deglaze and let it reduce by half, on medium heat. Throw all the remaining ingredients and the shrimp's shells. Let everything simmer for a good 30mins and sieve it all. Make sure to keep the broth a little bit hot and poach the scampi in for 3mins.
In a salad bowl, throw in the fennel, the lime zest and the juice. Add in the olive oil, the mustard & the chives. Season and reserve.
Whisk the cream up to get some soft spikes. Add in the Espelette pepper, the juice and the lemon zests. Season.
In a small tapas plate, start up by laying a little bit of salad in. Then a spoonful of aigrelette and the shrimp on the very top. Finish off with some Maldon salt or fleur de sel.
