Tagliatelle with scampi cream: this is how you enrich your Friday dinner


Elegant in their simplicity, the tagliatelle with scampi cream I’m a first fish with a delicate flavour.

To prepare them, you must first create one bisque made of scampi heads and shells, water, parsley, carrots and tomato paste. It will take 15 minutes for the water to flavor and the vegetables to soften to the point of being easily blended. The bisque, that is a sort of fish soupwill then be filtered, in order to eliminate any remnants of the crustacean shell.

The tagliatelle, strictly cooked al dente, will then be creamed in the bisque which can be more or less thick at your discretion.

Despite the use of scampi rind for the preparation of the sauce, this dish is delicate on the palate, thanks to the presence of tomato and carrot which give it a sweet and creamy note.
