Simply Ming

Shrimp Mousse (#202)

Ming Tsai shares a childhood favorite, Shrimp Mousse -- that still ranks high on his list of culinary cravings. One of the first things he learned to make in his Mom's kitchen, the savory concoction has been tweaked over the years but never complicated. It still features 4 simple ingredients -- shrimp, eggs, butter, and truffle oil. This tasty mixture can be used for instant, easy hors d'oeuvres of Shrimp Toast, a light first course of Steamed Shumai with Edamames and Lemon Broth, and an entree of Shrimp Crusted Halibut with Spicy Asparagus Salad. Who better to consult about finding the freshest seafood than the authorities of Boston-based Legal Seafoods? CEO Roger Berkowitz offers up suggestions of what to look for when selecting the perfect shrimp. Later, legendary chef Jacques Pepin joins Ming in the kitchen and uses the Shrimp Mousse as the French traditionally do: as a savory crust, serving up Shrimp Cushion on Watercress.
