Gambas flambeed in pastis No. 2
• 8 shrimp or large prawns per person
• 50 cl of crème fraîche
• A small quantity of saffron
• 1 clove of garlic
• 1/2 bunch of tarragon
• Pastis HB
Shell the shrimp.
Marinate the gambas (1/2 hour) in 2 to 3 tablespoons of pastis and the tarragon.
In a large frying pan, sauté the shrimp with the garlic on a high heat. When hot, lower the temperature, add the marinade, wait a few seconds then flambé (you may have to add a little more Pastis HB!).
Stir in the crème fraîche, add the rest of the tarragon, stir, then the saffron. Season with salt and pepper.
If the taste of the Pastis HB is too strong, add more crème fraîche.
Cook briefly over a low heat.
Serve with white rice.
