  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

  • 1 tsp. paprika

  • 1 tsp. salt

In a medium saucepan, melt 2 Tbs. butter over moderately low heat. Add the shallots and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Increase the heat to moderately high. Add the wine and simmer until reduced to about 1/2 cup. Add the heavy cream and simmer until the mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon, about 10 minutes. Stir in the paprika, salt and pepper, strain. Cook the stelline in boiling, salted water until just done. Drain. In a large frying pan, melt the remaining 2 Tbs. butter over high heat. Add the shrimp, bell pepper and scallions. Cook just until the shrimp turn pink, about 2 minutes. Add the sauce and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the stelline and parmesan cheese. Serve at once topped with the chives.
