Sunrise Kitchen: Shrimp, Crab, and Red and Yellow Bell Pepper Coulis

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - SOWELA chef Roy Angelle and his student Tyler Kyeer  share a recipe for Shrimp, Crab and Red and Yellow Bell Pepper Coulis.

  • ¼ pound salted butter
  • ¼ small yellow onion, diced (about ¼ cup)
  • 3 roasted red bell pepper (irregular cut)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 16 ounces lobster stock (For yellow pepper coulis, put shrimp stock instead of lobster)
  • 2 ounces brandy
  • 2 ounces white wine
  • ½ pound Shrimp (For yellow pepper coulis, put crab instead of peeled shrimp.)
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ tablespoon granulated garlic
  • Melt the butter in a stockpot over medium high heat and add the onions.
  • Sauté the vegetables about 5 minutes until the onions become caramelized.
  • Add bell peppers and sauté for 10 minutes.
  • Add seasoning and deglaze with wine.
  • Whisk the flour into the mixture to make a roux.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring.
  • Slowly add lobster stock and then half and half, whisking constantly.
  • Bring the soup to a low rolling boil and cook for 20 minutes and puree.
  • Place back in pot and add the shrimp and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.

For yellow bell pepper coulis, use the same recipe and substitute yellow peppers for the red ones and use crab and shrimp stock.
