Pilaf de camarones o gambas












Te apuesto que ya me estaban pelando (porque no ponía la receta en español) disculpen pero ha sido de locos este tiempo, no tiene nada de relax veraniego.


Esta receta simple y deliciosa es para cualquier tiempo ( ami me encanta) y puede ser un acompañamiento o plato principal.
Es otra receta de ese  libro precioso " Cocina Mediterranea"

3 cucharadas de aceite de oliva o de maravilla
2 cebollines picados finitos
1/2 pimiento rojo cortado en trocitos
1 diente de ajo
250 gramos de arroz blanco (grano corto)
2 tazas de caldo de pescado o vegetal(pueden hacer con cubos de verdura)
 sal y pimienta
1 hoja de laurel
400 gramos de camarones o gambas

Para adornar

hojas de albahaca
algunos camarones

Preparación

 En un sartén grande poner el aceite y freir los cebollines picados, junto con el pimiento y el ajo, freir unos 5 minutos hasta que esté todo tierno.
.Agregar el arroz y sofreir durante 2 a 3 minutos hasta que el arroz esté transparente.
Agregar la hoja de laurel y el caldo que puede ser de pescado o de verduras.
Agregar sal y pimienta a gusto.
Tapar la olla y cocer durante unos 15 minutos a fuego lento.
Hasta que el arroz haya absorbido el líquido.
 No revolver mientras se cocina el arroz.
Cuando esté listo agregar los camarones y revolver suavemente.
Retirar la tapa y cubrir con una toalla de cocina limpia.
Dejar reposar unos diez minutos.
Revolver con un tenedor y servir en bols o como acompañamiento, adornar con albahaca y camarones.

  24. This recipe reminds me of an old salsa song whose chorus used to go: "Yo no como camaron", and I used to answer, "well, I do". I'm mad about prawns, especially King Prawns. Gracias por la receta. Me encanto.

    Estoy de vuelta a Bloguilandia! :-)

  45. Why would you use frozen prawns? Well in my experience the flavor is greatly reduced and the texture is fairly chewy.
