Step 1. Langoustine Bouillon

Step 3. Risotto

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and brown the second chopped shallot.
  2. Add the rice and stir until it becomes translucent. Deglaze with champagne and add the bouillon. Stir constantly. Season.
  3. Moisten the rice as soon as the water has evaporated, until the rice is al dente and creamy.
  4. Melt in a dab of butter.

Step 4. Plating-Up

  1. Serve the risotto in a soup dish, then place a few langoustines on top.
  2. Garnish with baby shoots or flowers.
