DIRECTIONS

  • Coarsely chop shrimp shells. Place chopped shells in a 5 quart non-aluminum saucepan and add cognac, wine, stock, garlic, shallots, herbs and spices.
  • Cover and cook over medium heat 15-20 minutes, or until the shallots are quite limp.
  • Strain mixture through a fine sieve, pressing down with a spoon to force all of the liquid through. Discard solids. Return stock to a clean saucepan.
  • Stir tomato puree into stock and cook, uncovered for 5 minutes, or until sauce thickens slightly.
  • Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients.
