Yesterday we were preparing some nice shrimps for the barbecue and we thought it would be a waste to throw away such nice shrimp heads. And here we go, improvised quick recipe!
8 nice shrimp heads
1 piece of kombu
2 tsp of good miso paste (we used a nice, not too strong aka miso – the red one).
if you wish some negi (japanese bunching onion)
Bring to boil around 2 liter of water with the kombu. When it is boiling add the prawn heads.
It will start to make a pink foam on the water, keep skimming it.
Lower the heat, let it simmer at very low fire.
When no more foam comes out, put the miso paste in a bowl, add some cooking water and stir. When it has dissolved, put the it back into the soup.
Keep it for 1 minute at low fire and if you wish you can add some negi (japanese bunching onion).
You are ready to serve.
