For the first time in all my 76 years have chosen to make scampi risotto.
Naturally, I must remove all the bits and make a bisque/fume (whatever). In doing this, have noticed inside many of the heads a dark green, pea-shaped "blob", which I am religiously removing with a teaspoon (Grrrr!).
Am I correct in doing this or am I removing the magic ingredient for my risotto?
Am not a TOTALLY ignorant fish cook I can remove the poo from a prawn one-handed (ha!ha!) but have never attacked scampi before and am not sure I want to again. ?
Help, please, for an ignoramus from an expert!
