Description

Prawn shells contain loads of flavour and that beautiful orange colour, so instead of putting them in the rubbish, why not turn them into a delicious shellfish oil? You can use scampi or prawn shells – this recipe works well with either. There is not much difference – the scampi have claws and are generally sweeter but are touch more expensive.

Directions

  • To roast the scampi or prawn shells, preheat the oven to 180°C. Put the shells on the tray and roast for 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • In a large pot heat a little of the oil, add carrot, onion and tomato paste and fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the roasted shells and all the other ingredients, including remaining oil, and cook for about 2 hours, or until most of the water has evaporated. Leave it to cool for a while.
  • Line a strainer with muslin, place over a bowl and tip in the scampi mixture. When the oil has drained into the bowl, skim off any extra water, pour the shellfish oil into a jar, seal and and refrigerate
  • The oil should keep in a sealed jar in the fridge for around 1 month.
  • Serves: 500 ml
