A simple recipe by a great Spanish chef
22 June 2017 @ 19:08

       Today I would like to show you a recipe prepared by the great Spanish chef, Karlos Arguiñano: "Leek and prawn cake".

      These are the Ingredients (for 6 persons):  4 leeks. 250 grams of prawns. 7 eggs. 400 millilitres of liquid cream. 1 seed bread. Butter and flour (for the mold). Extra virgin olive oil. Salt. Pepper. Nutmeg. Parsley.

      And this is what you have to do: Cut the bread into thin slices, spread them on the oven tray and toast them, until golden.

      Now wash the leeks, finely chop them and place them in a frying pan with olive oil. Leeks must be well poached, until they are soft. Peel the prawns, cut them into small pieces, pour salt and pepper and add them to the leek pan. Remove everything and move the pan away from the stove burner.

      Spread an elongated mould with melted butter, place a strip of baking paper along it so that it protrudes, spread the butter and sprinkle it with flour. Add leeks and prawns.

      Beat eggs in a bowl, salt and pepper, add the cream, grate over a little nutmeg and mix everything well. Pour the mixture into the mould and bake, to the water bath, at 180 degrees, for 45 minutes. Let it quench, demold and cut the cake into portions.

      Then, sauté the heads and the shells of the prawns, in a saucepan, with a trickle of oil. Scrape them and wring them in a strainer.

      Serve the cake, with the slices of toast and the prawn juice. Garnish with parsley leaves.

      And this must be the result:

      Well, I hope that you want to try to cook this recipe and hope that you like it. Please tell about it.

      Until my next post, kid regards,
