Now transfer it into a blender together with the flour and the egg white. Mix this till it’s a smooth mixture. After that spread it on a silicon mold. The mold I use is from Mold Brothers. Then bake it at 160 degrees Celsius for around 15 minutes till golden. Remove the tuille when it’s still hot.

Pour the beaten egg into a blender together with the salt, the orange juice, the sushi vinegar and the cold shrimp oil we just made. Now blender this till it’s a smooth cream and then transfer it into a piping bag.


How to finish


Then take your cleaned shrimps and season them with the shrimp cream, some orange zest, salt and pepper. Mix this and then we can start to plate. First place a small layer of the salsify on the bottom of a bowl. Then cover this with the shrimp salad. Now gently place the coffee tuille on top. Then pipe a couple of dots of the cream on there and finish it of with some winter purslane. Enjoy!
