– 24 plywood red prawns.
– 6 garlic cloves.
– Chopped parsley.
-Extra virgin olive oil.
Firstly, it will be necessary to peel the shrimp leaving the head so that it does not separate while we cook them. Once peeled, we must cook them over low heat for just two minutes in a saucepan with oil, garlic and chilli; adding the prawns when the garlic begins to cook. Finally, just add a little parsley on top.
Broth rice snuff and prawns with crab cream
The ingredients for this recipe will be varied. In this way, for the cream of crab will need to get:
– 4 crabs.
– Half a red pepper.
-2 garlic cloves.
-Heads and skins of prawns.
– 1 glass of fish broth.
For his part, to make the rice we will have to have:
– A kilo and a half of prawns.
– A kilo of monkfish.
– 700 grams of rice.
– 2 liters of fish stock.
– 1 onion.
– 2 tomatoes.
– 2 cloves of garlic.
– 2 glasses of wine.
– A few strands of saffron and salt.
So, First of all we recommend preparing the cream of crab. For this you will have to cut the vegetables into pieces to fry them properly, over low heat, for about 10 minutes. Once this time has passed, you should add the crabs cut into relatively small pieces. When you add the crab, you will also have to add the heads and skins of the prawns to sauté everything together for 3 or 4 minutes. Subsequently, the broth must be incorporated and cooked for 20 minutes. Finally, it will be necessary to crush and place everything.
Then you will have to get down to work with the broth rice. Thus, before anything else, it will be necessary to put oil on the fire, to add the vegetables when it is hot enough. When the vegetables have been poached, you can add the wine and wait a few minutes for it to evaporate, then add the cream of crab. When we have mixed everything well, it will be time to incorporate the rice, stirring constantly for two minutes.
At this time, the monkfish cut into pieces should be added and also the prawns, the saffron and a pinch of salt. We keep it on the fire for about 15 or 17 minutes and then we turn it off, letting it rest. This broth rice can be perfectly accompanied by a seafood salpicón, which can be the first course of a good meal.
Stuffed spider crab
Finally, for the preparation of this recipe you will have to get the following list of ingredients:
– A jet of olive oil.
– A little butter.
– One or more spider crabs (will depend on the number of people to eat).
– An onion.
– A crushed and skinless tomato.
– 4 tablespoons of fried tomato.
– A boiled egg.
– 4 surimi sticks.
– 3 raw shrimp.
– A glass of clam chowder.
– Half a glass of cognac.
– Half a glass of cream for cooking.
First of all, you will have to chop all the ingredients into very small pieces. For its part, the spider crab meat must also be crumbled, once it has been cooked. When everything is well chopped, you will have to put the oil and butter in a saucepan over low heat. First you will have to incorporate the onion and a few minutes later also the parsley.
When it is done enough, it will be time to incorporate the fried tomato and the crushed tomato. After approximately ten minutes, add the cooked egg, the surimi bars, the prawns, the red crab meat, the glass of fish soup and the glass of cognac. The idea, in any case, is to gradually add all the ingredients.
At the moment when almost all the liquid is ready, it will be necessary to add the white meat of the spider crab – previously separated from the red meat – and the cream for cooking. Stir for a few minutes and let it rest. Once cold, you must place it inside the spider crab, leaving it to cool for at least one night in the fridge. The next day, it will be perfect to take and taste seafood in an original way.
