How to Prepare the Soup:

  1. Peel the shrimp and put the shells aside. Keep the shrimps cold.
  2. Chop the vegetables into small squares and put aside.
  3. Fry the shrimp shells in a pot for a couple of minutes, then add the vegetables and fry for two more minutes.
  4. Add the white wine, water, and the tomato puree and cover with a lid. Turn down the heat and let the mixture simmer for about one hour, stirring once in a while so it doesn’t stick.
  5. Strain the base and pour it back into the pot. Add the cream (and some more water if necessary).
  6. Let the soup simmer for about 10 minutes.
  7. Finish with some cognac, salt and pepper.

Plating

  1. Pour the soup into a soup plate. To make the dish look more appetizing and to highlight the soup, I use a black plate with wide edges.
  2. Place a handful of shrimps onto the soup and finish with some dill before serving.
