Preparation Time: 30 mins Cooking Time: 55 mins Serving: 8

Ingredients:
  • 500g shelled tiger prawns
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion , chopped
  • 1 large fennel bulb , chopped, fronds reserved
  • 2 carrots , chopped
  • 150ml dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp brandy
  • 400g can chopped tomato
  • 1L fish stock
  • 2 generous pinches paprika
  • 150ml pot double cream
  • Fennel cuttings
Method:
  1. Shell the prawns, Add oil in a large pan fry the shells for 5 minutes then add the onion, fennel & carrots & cook for about 10 mins until the veg start to soften. Pour in the wine and brandy, boil for about 1 min to drive off the alcohol, then add the tomatoes, stock & paprika. Cover & simmer for 30 mins. Meanwhile, chop the prawns.
  2. Blitz the soup as finely as you can with a stick blender or food processor, then press through a sieve into a bowl. Spend a bit of time really working the mixture through the sieve as this will give the soup its velvety texture.
  3. Tip back into a clean pan, add the prawns & cook for 10 mins, then blitz again until smooth. You can make and chill this a day ahead. Thaw overnight in the fridge. To serve, gently reheat in a pan with the cream. If garnishing, cook the 8 prawns in a little butter. Spoon into small bowls and top with the prawns & snipped fennel cuttings.
