Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 2 small Belgian endives
  • Thin crackers, for serving

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring water, wine, 1 teaspoon salt, and the bay leaf to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add half the shrimp, and cook until opaque, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to a plate, and let cool. Repeat with remaining shrimp. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

  2. Step 2

    Whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Pour in oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking until emulsified. Whisk in creme fraiche. Fold in shallot, chives, and shrimp. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (and up to 4 hours). Just before serving, separate endive leaves, and thinly slice crosswise. Fold endive into shrimp mixture. Serve on crackers.
