Shrimp Cocktail Recipe | The Italian kitchen – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

Step 1

For the prawn cocktail recipe, peel the shallot and slice it; also peel the ginger and chop it; fry them together in a saucepan with a drizzle of oil for 2-3 minutes, then add the tomato puree and 20 g of water. Add the sugar and a pinch of salt and cook for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, adding, towards the end of cooking, the juice of 1/2 orange and a splash of Tabasco.

Step 2

Pass the sauce through a sieve to make it smoother and let it cool, obtaining an orange ketchup.

Step 3

Mix this ketchup with mayonnaise to create a brightly colored “pink” sauce.

Step 4

Shell the prawns, removing the heads and leaving only the end part of the tail.

Step 5

Open the bodies lengthwise, remove the brown fillet and season them with a pinch of salt, pepper, a splash of orange juice and grated lemon zest.

Step 6

Distribute the sauce into traditional cups and place the prawns on top. Complete with salmon and lumpfish roe to taste.

Step 7

Good to know: shell the prawns and prepare them while you cook the ketchup sauce, cover them and store them in the refrigerator. Season them only when serving them.

Step 8

Yesterday and today: raw prawns instead of cooked prawns, as was originally used. The pink sauce, obtained with homemade ketchup, has a note of orange, which recalls the seasoning of the prawns, further refreshed by the lemon zest. The unusual addition of salmon and lumpfish roe gives flavor and colour.

Step 9

Wine pairing: the prawn cocktail and the Franciacorta Rosé also get along well on a chromatic level. The Brut of Castello Bonomi is a balanced pure Pinot Noir, with pleasant aromas of berries (29 euros, castellobonomi.it).

Shrimp cocktail recipe, chef Perbellini’s recipe – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

Step 1

Clean the lettuce by removing the fibrous parts. Keep the innermost and tender leaves aside.

Step 2

Using an immersion blender, blend 60 g of leaves with 20 g of vinegar, the pasteurized egg white, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. Gradually add the sunflower oil until the mixture forms like mayonnaise.

Step 3

Boil the milk with the cream, then add the grated ricotta and emulsify with a mixer until you obtain a creamy consistency.

Step 4

Sear the prawns in a pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil for a few seconds on each side.

Step 5

Arrange the inner leaves of the lettuce in the bowls. Pour 1 tablespoon of lettuce mayonnaise in the center and 4 prawns on the leaves. Complete with drops of ketchup and tufts of ricotta cream.
