  • 500 g Washed raw shrimp peels - heads, shells)
  • 1 l Water
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 50 g Olive or butter
  • 10 g Parsley
  • 50 ml White wine
  • Salt to taste


  • In olive oil (sometimes butter is used), fry the garlic, onions and carrots, cut into small pieces, until golden brown.
  • Add the shrimp heads without eyes and shells. Fry for 5-10 minutes.
  • We increase the heat and add wine, evaporate the alcohol.
  • Fill with very cold water (thermal shock gives a richer taste) and cook the bisque over low heat for 30-40 minutes. Add parsley for 5 minutes. I did not add it, so as not to spoil the bright color.
  • All that is in the pan, grind with a blender and filter through a fine sieve.
  • The result is a broth with a very rich shrimp flavor.
