In a bowl, whisk the egg yolk with the Dijon mustard and dash lemon juice and zests. Add in the vegetable oil in a drizzle, while whisking constantly until you get a mayonnaise consistency. Add in the chili paste to taste. Season with salt and pepper. Mix the shrimp with a little bit of mayonnaise.
- To serve
On your plate, using a ring mold, serve a portion of the avocado, fennel salad and the shrimp, press it gently with the back of a spoon, remove the mold and finish with some coriander leaves on top.
The Nordic shrimps are commonly called Matane shrimp in Quebec, not because the shrimps swim the St. Lawrence river up to Matane but because the city was the first to have a shrimp transformation plant.
