Crispy prawns with wakame seaweed and wasabi vinaigrette

img_0007-4

INGREDIENTS

  • 40 Prawns.
  • 5 Sheets brik pastry.
  • 2 Limes.
  • 10 gr. Dehydrated wakame seaweed.
  • 1tbsp. Sesame seeds.
  • 200 gr. Special flour for fried food.
  • 100 ml. Rice vinegar.
  • 50 ml. Soft olive oil.
  • 10 ml. Soya bean sauce.
  • 1 Red onion.
  • 1tbsp. Wasabi paste.
  • Mild olive oil.
  • Salt and white pepper.

DIRECTIONS

Hydrate the seaweeds in a bowl with cool water for 20 minutes. Clean the prawns taking heads aside that will be moved away and the shell but keeping the last part and the tail. The shells can be frozen to be used later in a seafood broth. Move the intestine away with the help of a brochette. Make some transversal and not too deep cuts to the lower side of prawns in order to avoid the tail to wind. Season it at taste.
Drain and chop seaweeds thinly. We can be helped by a Magefesa Picaplus Mincer. Place the special flour for fried food, the minced seaweeds, the grated rind lime and the sesame seeds in a Magefesa Mixtura Mixer bowl, mix slowly and add cool water until getting a cream similar to crêpes. Chop each brick pasta in the middle and each half into four, so we get 40 brick pasta triangles.
Paint triangles of seaweed cream with a kitchen brush, place the fine point of the triangle on the very last part of the prawn, wrap the tail completely like a mummy trying that it is well adjusted so that no oil can go in when frying .This step should be done little by little so that the pasta does not dry to be wrapped easily. Place it on a non-stick paper until having all prawns wrapped. Sauté prawn’s heads in a Magefesa Stainless Steel Gourmet Skillet for a couple of minutes, move it away and leave it cooling.
Squeeze heads to extract the juice that will make our vinaigrette more powerful. Emulsify, for wasabi vinaigrette, in a Stela Magefesa Mixer jar the mild olive oil, rice vinegar, soya sauce, wasabi tablespoon, strained heads’ extract and some drops of lime juice to taste, once emulsified add the chopped red onion cut into very fine brunoise. Fry the prawns in plenty virgin olive oil until brown and serve accompanied by wasabi vinaigrette.
These prawns can be prepared beforehand and be kept in the freezer until the time of being served as an appetizer or starter.

Fotos arroz con pollo, conejo y verduras 05-11-15 (18)

Ingredients:

  • 300 gr. Rice.
  • 2 Chicken thighs.
  • 1 Rabbit loin.
  • 1/2 Green pepper.
  • 1/2 Red pepper.
  • 2 Garlic cloves.
  • 1 Medium size grated ripe tomato.
  • 100 gr. flat Green beans.
  • 8 Green asparagus (remove the hard part of the stalk and cut into julienne).
  • Mild olive oil.
  • Salt.
  • Saffron.
  • Paprika.
  • 675 ml. Poultry stock

Directions:
Bone the chicken and rabbit thighs. Dice the meat into 2 cm cubes and season to taste. Wash and chop all vegetables into fine julienne except for tomato and garlic cloves. Grate the tomato and chop garlic finely. Heat mild olive oil in a MAGEFESA fast pressure cooker. When hot, brown the meat until uniformly brown. Remove and keep.
Brown the meat in the same oil (add a little more if necessary); incorporate the red and green pepper together with the garlic, sauté over medium heat stirring frequently. Add the green beans and sauté for a few minutes more. Remove and keep. Incorporate the grated tomatoes to the pot and sauté, tomatoes will help release ingredients stuck to the bottom of the pot and will help enhance flavors. Once the sauce is ready, bring back the meat and vegetables that have been saved. Add the rice and sauté the whole quickly for a few minutes or until rice begins to turn transparent.
Sprinkle paprika, stir quickly and moisten with hot stock. Sprinkle saffron and share the asparagus. Close the pot and let it cook over high heat, the working valve will start to release steam or rotate, depending on the model used. Reduce heat to low so that the internal pressure is kept inside the unit or the working valve turns around uniformly. Start to count time, between 7 and 8 minutes. Once time has elapsed, remove the pot from the heat source and release pressure using the fast pressure release system method (see the instructions manual). Cover the pot with a kitchen towel and let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
