Total Time20 mins
Servings: 6


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of creamy cheese e.g. Boursin
  • 1 tablespoon of sour cream
  • around 30 cooked shrimps
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • oil


  • Separate the egg white from the yolk. Whisk the egg white until it stands up in well-defined peaks. Mix the egg yolk and then add it gently to the white and mix with a spoon.
  • Use a spoon to place the mixture from above onto the non-stick baking paper, shaping ovals. Bake in the pre-heated oven on 360F for around 10min, until golden. The ovals need to be hard enough to cut them, should not be wet inside.
  • In the meantime, coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil and add smashed garlic.Put shrimps into the hot pan and stir them with a spoon frequently so that both sides of the shrimp get cooked. Cook them over high heat for 3-4 minutes.
  • Cut each oval from above lengthwise and spread it with cheese inside. Place shrimps around each oval to make turtles legs and head. Cut shrimps if needed to adjust the length.
