2 Unit(s)
French shallot
1 Unit(s)
Yellow pepper


1 Unit(s)
Preserve lemon
1 Unit(s)
50 Ml
Olive oil


1 Handful(s)
Greek basil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

Preparation time: 45 min

Preheat your Oven at 400 °F

  • Preparation

    Remove the shrimp tails from the shell.  Cut the zucchini into small matchsticks with the help of a mandolin.  Finely slice the French shallot.  Cut the yellow pepper into fine matchsticks.  Zest and juice the lemon.  Remove the center of the confit lemons and slice the skin.  Slice the basil.

  • Shrimp

    In a mixing bowl, start off by seasoning the shrimp with a thread of oil, salt and Espelette pepper.  Next, transfer them to a baking sheet and roast for 8-10 minutes.  You will know it is ready when the flesh is brittle and tender.

  • Vinaigrette

    Place the lemon confit, lemon juice, lemon zest and olive oil in the blender and blend until nice and smooth.

  • Garnish and plating

    Start by seasoning the vegetables with the lemon vinaigrette.  Place this salad in the bottom of your serving dish and garnish with the shrimp.  Sprinkle with basil for the final touch.

Do not mistake sweet confit lemons for the salted version.  The sweet version, confit in sugar, is best used in desserts.
