- Prawns 300 g
- Water 900 g
- Hake (skinless and boneless 450 g)
- Carrots 50 g
- Shallots 50 g
- Olive oil 50 g
- White wine 50 g
- Crushed tomato 100 g
- Round rice 40 g
- 2 strands of saffron
- Fish stock cube 10 g
- Place the stir paddle accessory in the glass and add 500 g of water together with the prawn heads and shells. This will be the fumet. Place the deep steam basket with the hake in it. Cook for 7 minutes with the steam function activated and with fast flow. Remove the deep steam basket and set aside covered.
- Rinse the glass. Attach the blade accessory to the Chefbot. Add the chopped carrot and shallot and the olive oil. Program 10 seconds on speed 5.
- Continue with the blade accessory and the previous mixture. Program 6 minutes at 100ºC and speed 1.
- Add the wine and program 1 minute at 100ºC and speed 1 to evaporate the alcohol from the wine and without closing the steam outlet cap to release steam.
- Add the crushed tomato and rice. Program 5 minutes at 100ºC and speed 1.
- Add half the hake and 100 g of water to lower the temperature. Blend, programming 30 seconds on speed 5 and then 30 seconds on speed 10. If necessary, repeat 30 seconds more on speed 10.
- Add the rest of the water (300 g) and program 4 minutes at 100ºC and speed 1.
- Change the accessory and insert the stir paddle accessory. Add the prawns in small pieces. Set aside one whole prawn per person for garnish. Program 1 minute at 100ºC and speed 1.
- Pass the prawns, whole and peeled, through the frying pan, turn and turn, to decorate the dish. Set aside.
- Pour into a tureen or onto individual plates. Add the other half of the remaining hake in chunks. Garnish the dish with the reserved whole prawns, chopped parsley and a drizzle of olive oil.
