Marseille-Style Shrimp Stew

with Roasted Garlic Toast & Baby Greens Salad

Cooking time

10 minutes




710 /serving

Seafood stews are a specialty of Marseille, the ancient French port city on the Mediterranean Sea. And dunking bread into the spiced brothy concoction is essential to partaking in the ritual. Watch plump white shrimp turn to pink as they cook in a base of demi-glace and tomato sauce, along with rounds of carrots. Garlicky toasted focaccia does double duty for dipping and as croutons in a side salad kissed with sweet Dijon vinaigrette.

Start the stew
Thinly slice the carrots. In a large pot, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium-high. Sauté ⅔ of the carrots and ½ the garlic, 3 to 4 min., until softened. Add the tomato sauce, demi-glace, 1 cup water (double for 4 portions), ½ the spices and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 min., until slightly thickened.

Finish the stew
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel (remove the shells from the tails if desired); season with all but a pinch of the remaining spices and S&P. To the pot of stew, add the shrimp*. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 4 min., until opaque and cooked through.

Make the garlic toast
Meanwhile, warm the focaccia in the toaster. In a small bowl, microwave 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions), and the remaining garlic and spices, in 10 sec. increments, until softened, but not melted. Spread the cut-sides of the focaccia with the butter.

Finish & serve
Halve the garlic toast on an angle; medium-dice ½. To the bowl of salad, add the diced garlic toast; toss well. Divide the stew between your bowls. Serve the salad and halved garlic toast on the side. Bon appétit!
