Sautéed Shrimp on a bed of Turnip Reduction
with an Onion Au Jus Sauce

By Executive Chef Keith Keogh, Total Food Network, Florida

Seafood and turnips are a marriage made in heaven. The delicate flavors of the turnip enhance the gentle flavors of this exquisite, delicate, shrimp.

Turnip Reduction Ingredients:
1 Turnip (chopped and diced)
4 cups Milk
TT Salt & Pepper

Put turnip in 2 cups milk. Bring to a gentle boil. Let milk reduce. Add milk again. Go through this process approximately three times. Eventually, turnip will be soft. Add liaison, and now don"t let heat go over 150° degrees. Reduce to the consistency of mashed potatoes. Set aside.

Fennel Bulb:
Peel off the outer layer of the fennel bulb (like an onion) and set poaches in boiling water for a few minutes. Remove and set aside.

Onion Au Jus Ingredients:
2 Onions (finely chopped)
Olive Oil
3 tbls. Cream
2 tbls. Dry sherry
Chopped Tarragon

Sauté chopped onions in olive oil. Gently brown on medium heat, and let get completely brown, but not crisp. Add approximately a cup of cold water to the sizzling pan. Stir in cornstarch. Stir. Add dry sherry.
Clarify the onion jus through a fine sieve. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Just before you plate it, add the cream, stir, serve.

Sautéed Shrimp Topping Ingredients:
1/2 cup Onion (diced)
1/2 cup Celery (diced)
1/2 cup Red Bell Pepper (diced)
2 Tbsp. Garlic (minced)
1 cup Shrimp
Seasoning to taste
1 Lemon (squeezed juice)

Sauté onion, celery, peppers, garlic, and add in the shrimp, tarragon, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

To Plate:
Take the fennel bulb. Place on plate. Get ready to spoon turnip reduction into the middle of the plate, coming out of the fennel bulb. Use mold to contain the turnip in the middle. Place shrimp on top of the turnip reduction. Spoon Onion Au Jus around the turnip. Remove the mold. Serve!
