Pasta with shrimp, Pachino tomatoes and pistachio

To prepare the pasta with shrimp, Pachino tomatoes and pistachio we must first clean the shrimp and, with heads and carapace, prepare a bisque, indispensable to give flavor to the dish.

FOR BISQUE (CARTOON). Clean the shrimps by removing the heads and the shell that surrounds the crustaceans. Set aside the heads and shells. Also eliminate the dark thread of the intestine inside the shrimp: I use a toothpick to pull it out and then gently with your fingers extension.

Peel the carrot and cut it into small pieces, clean the celery and cut it into slices. Put carrot, celery and onion, tomatoes and parsley in a pan with a little extra virgin olive oil and cook on medium heat for a few minutes. Add heads and the shells of shrimp and, over high heat, Brown (crushing the heads in order to bring out the mood) carefully for 5 minutes or until they have changed color. Add the white wine to evaporate and let evaporate the alcohol. Then add hot water to cover flush the shrimp waste. Bake for 30 minutes, then filter the sauce obtained in a colander meshed, fine crushing waste of shrimp and vegetables.

Wash the tomatoes and cut them in half. Place the tomatoes in a pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Season the tomatoes with salt, papá, a little sugar, herbs and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Cook the tomatoes over low heat, covered for 20 minutes, then remove the lid and continue cooking for another 10 minutes or until they are slightly wilted.

Skip the shrimp for less than a minute with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and very little salt in an already hot pan and high heat. Prawns should lightly brown on the outside but remain soft inside.

Boil the pasta in salted water. Drain al dente and toss with the tomatoes, adding much cartoon crustaceans what is necessary to give the desired creaminess casarecce. The more you will put, the stronger the taste of shrimp. After creamy pasta with tomatoes and shellfish bisque, add shrimp.

Serve the pasta with shrimp and tomatoes Pachino completing the dish with plenty of chopped pistachios. Bon appétit!



To prepare the pasta with shrimp, Pachino tomatoes and pistachios you can use any type of shrimp, those pink pot with small prawns. I advise against using, though, prawns too big because it would be a waste. The seafood bisque it keeps perfectly in the freezer up to 1 month: you can also put it in ice trays, wrapped in plastic wrap, to get the right dose to flavor your dishes ready.

MATCHING: A Doc Sicilia rosé based on Nero D'Avola grapes is the wine that is right for us in this combination. I come to take you to San Cataldo (Caltanissetta), which are active seals Lombardo, that produce this "Black Flower": alcohol content 13% vol, white winemaking in steel tanks, at a controlled temperature. A rosé wine that smells of strawberry and cherry, which is distinguished by a very fresh taste with hints of fruit. Ideal with the strong flavor of these noodles, where the bottom of the shrimp is the main thread.
