Tuesday, August 25, before serving delicious roasted figs with Speculoos, chef Lignac has concocted a shrimp sandwich enhanced with curry mayonnaise. A treat that would almost make you forget that it is a sandwich. And a new variation of the well-known shrimp avocado. You will find 3 more in the video above.
Curry, we love it. But did you know that there is not just one but an infinite variety of curries? Because under this known Indian name actually hides a mixture of spices. If you buy a classic curry powder, you will actually find a clever blend of turmeric, coriander seed, fenugreek, mustard seed, cardamom, ginger, anise, fennel and cloves … in which manufacturers can add dehydrated onion and garlic. If purists like to make their own mix, let's admit that the ready-made cocktail comes in handy every day. In particular to enhance a simple mayonnaise.
In previous programs, Cyril Lignac had already associated shrimp and spices: in his salad of crispy shrimps and spicy cream or in his coconut curry shrimp. That's good, summer shrimp recipes, we love them! Discover our slideshow of inspiring recipes above. Here, by combining in his sandwich the crunchy acidity of green apple, the smoothness of avocado and the unique flavor of cilantro, the chef is sure of his luck. Here is a sandwich that will mark the spirits! The absolutists of baguette butter ham have better watch out …

How to prepare the shrimp sandwich-roll, curry mayo by Cyril Lignac
Detail the ingredients. Cut the shrimp into sections, the salad into small pieces. Cut an apple slice, evacuate the skin. Then cut a new strip half a centimeter thick to make a brunoise by cutting the apple into small cubes. Cut the avocados into small squares about twice the size of the brunoise. In a salad bowl, pour the shrimps, avocados, apple and mix all the ingredients. Then pour a spoon of mayonnaise into the salad. Mix everything until all the ingredients are well combined.
Cyril Lignac's trick for a successful mayonnaise
Place a tea towel on the worktop to stabilize the bowl. To make the mayonnaise, the egg should be at room temperature. Add the mustard and whisk together the mustard and mayonnaise. Then gradually pour in the oil in a small stream to build the emulsion. "The more oil is added, the more the mayonnaise rises."Add the curry powder and mix thoroughly.
Put the milk breads in the dry pan (without any fat) to toast them until the breads are well toasted and soft. Open the breads in half and stuff them with the shrimp mayonnaise curry vegetable preparation.
Finish by zesting the lime on top of the sandwiches and arrange cilantro leaves on top. Serve without delay.
