After a long winter spring is finally here. I think the best way to celebrate is with the vegetable symbol of the season: the spring pea. I like fresh peas for this recipe, but when unable to find them, frozen works beautifully.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Small Onion, diced
  • 1 Leek, diced
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 Cup Dry White Wine
  • 2 Liters Chicken Broth
  • 2 Small Potatoes, cut up small
  • 1 Large Bag Green Peas, fresh or frozen
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Chives, chopped
  • 12 Spanish Grilled Shrimp
  • 35% Whipping Cream, in a plastic squirt bottle

Method

Step 1

Heat pot. Add oil and butter and wait for butter to foam.

Step 2

Add onion, leek and a pinch of salt. Cook until translucent, and then add the garlic.

Step 3

Once garlic becomes fragrant, turn up heat and add dry white wine. When smell of wine disappears, add the warm chicken stock and the potatoes. Bring to a simmer and let simmer until potatoes are cooked.

Step 4

Add the peas and cook until heated through, approx. 1 minute. Remove from heat and blend with immersion blender.

Step 5

Garnish with some drops and swirls of whipping cream, one Spanish Grilled Shrimp, chopped chives, and enjoy!
