Heat half the oil in a pan and sweat the onions and leeks until soft. Add the artichokes and sweat for a further two minutes.

Add the wine and reduce by half. Add the stock and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the artichokes are soft. Season, liquidise and pass through a fine strainer. Set aside and keep warm.

Heat the rest of the oil in a non-stick pan and sauté the shrimps. Season, drain off any fat and arrange them in soup bowls.

Bring the soup back to the boil, add the crème fraîche and liquidise again. Serve immediately.
