Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
For this recipe I used chipi chipi or chirla del Caribe as a substitute for clams. The chipi chipi is very delicate and opens easily, so we wash just a little to remove the sand. You can put them in a bowl and change the water several times. We reserve.
If you use clams you should clean them very well, until all possible sand is removed. Put the shellfish in a large bowl with enough water and add 2 tablespoons of salt. Cover the container with a lid and soak for 24 hours. Remember to change the water every 2 or 3 hours. The next day rinse under the tap and drain again. Reservation.
Trick: If you use clams and find a broken one, you simply discard it.
Put the fish in a saucepan with enough water. Boil 20 minutes.
Drain the dogfish, cubes and season with salt and pepper. Reservation.
Prepare a bite with the almonds (you can also put hazelnuts or both), the garlic, the parsley leaves and the white wine for the dogfish a la marinera. Crush all the ingredients and mix very well with the mortar. Reservation.
Trick: A mincemeat is grinding ingredients (to flavor) in the mortar that are then added to the cooking of a dish or sauce.
Cut the onion, red pepper and chili (or chili) into small cubes. Cook the tomatoes boiled or steamed, when the skin cracks, remove from heat and prepare a puree. Reserve all the ingredients.
Preheat a large skillet with a jet of olive oil over high heat. Deposit the prawns and brown on both sides. Reservation. For this recipe I used shrimp instead of shrimp but prawns are also served. Preferably remove the skin of the shellfish before cooking.
Trick: Avoid overdoing with cooking the prawns (shrimp or prawns) otherwise they will become like chewing gum.
On the same oil as the shrimp, add an additional stream of olive oil. Sauté the onions until they soften and then add the bell pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes on low heat.
Add the chopped (garlic, parsley, almonds and wine). Wait until the wine evaporates and the garlic is browned.
Add the mashed tomato puree to the pan and mix well. Add a teaspoon of brown sugar (or brown sugar) to the (optional) dogfish sauce. Cook for 30 minutes or until you reduce the mix.
Trick: Sugar softens the natural acidity of the tomato.
Previously, mix a tablespoon of cornstarch with the fish stock (which should be at room temperature) and beat well until the preparation is homogeneous. Then, pour the broth into the pan and let reduce for 15 minutes.
Trick: You can add a bay leaf, if you like.
After this time, add the dogfish and cook for 20 minutes. Stir carefully so as not to crumble the fish and cover the pan.
Finally, deposit the prawns and clams (shrimp and chipi chipi). Cover, raise the heat and cook 5 minutes more or until the chirlas open.
He sea dogfish It is delicious and very nutritious. A classic of southern Spanish food!
