Mediterranean Summer Recipe with Shrimps


To clean the shrimps, remove the carapace and the intestine by cutting the back with a small knife, then cut them finely until you obtain a tartare. Season with extra virgin olive oil, pepper, just a pinch of salt, lime juice.

Blanch the celery and cool immediately in the ice, then make a brunoise (cut in very small dices).

Form small circles with the help of a coppapasta (food ring mold for dough), keep the layers separated, add small brushstrokes of yogurt, Maldon salt and dill.
