Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

shells and heads from shrimp

2 shallots, peeled and diced

1 clove garlic, peeled and sliced

4 ancho chilies, seeded and chopped

2 sprigs fresh cilantro, chopped

1 serrano chili, seeded

2 cups fish stock

1 tablespoon masa harina

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

1/2 teaspoon honey

salt to taste

Directions

Heat oil in a small saucepan over high heat. When it just starts to smoke, add shrimp shells and heads and saute for 1 minute, stirring constantly, or until bright pink in color. Add shallots, garlic and anchos. Lower heat and cook, stirring constantly, for about 4 minutes or until shallots, garlic, and anchos are lightly toasted.

Add tomatoes, cilantro and serrano. Raise heat to medium and cook 2 minutes. Add stock. Lower heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Do not reduce. Pour into a blender and puree until smooth. Mix masa harina with enough cold water to make a paste. Then, with the motor running, add to the puree in the blender. Strain through a fine sieve and stir in lime juice, honey and salt. Keep warm until ready to use.
