How to make it
- Soak the ginger in the wine for about 15 minutes.
- Put a large pot of salted water on to boil for the pasta.
- Heat a large skillet over high heat. When the skillet's hot, pour in a slick of olive oil. Add the shrimp, season with salt and white pepper, and add the buter. Saute the shrimp until pink and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
- Put the skillet back on the heat and add the ginger and wine, the shallots, and champgne vinegar. Brint to a boil and boil to reduce the liquid to about 3 tablespoons. Pour in the cream, season with salt and pepper, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat so the cream simmers actively and cook until the cream has reduced by one third. Add the shrimp and any juices from the bowl.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta. When it is al dente, add the snow peas to the boiling pasta and then drain.
- To serve, make a mound of pasta in the center of four dinner plates. Spoon some of the sauce on the pasta and the rest around it. Arrange the shrimp in a circle around the pasta. Garnish with the tomatoes and serve immediately.
