Taking classes from a chef it’s an honor. When the chef acquired her experience and partially trained with a Michelin chef after graduating from culinary school, it is surreal and I am still pinching myself at the opportunity that was given to me.
Being taught personally and cooking with a chef I must admit it is nerve-wracking.
Fortunately for me, my friend and Eliane, Chef-owner of La Serviette Blanche and Born To Taste, it is a pure delight to cook and work with. Not only she makes you completely at ease, but she shares her recipes openly and with lots of love.
Cooking is her passion. The passion that transcends to you, or in this case, me.
Here tonight is Chef Eliane’s recipe that I slightly changed. She served it with scallops, I used Prawns. The result was the same: utterly delicious.
I have added the picture of the meal she prepared with scallops in the picture gallery. Either way, this dish is fabulous and so easy to make.
A sweet corn puree that will make you want to lick the plate with prawns cooked to perfection and with a hint of heat from the paprika. A small amount of
Basil oil all around the dish will enhance the flavor.
I did not use fresh corn, or corn in the cob, for this recipe. We used canned corn that we reheated then placed in a blender or food processor.
Cook the onion to translucent, being aware that they do not turn golden brown which will give more of a nutty flavor to your dish.
Shrimps or Prawns?
Love them both, however, the shrimps are a lot more cost-effective.
Even though shrimps and prawns belong to the Decapod crustaceans family, meaning that they both have ten legs and possess external skeletons, they have different anatomy, size and live in different types of water.
Shrimps are marine, meaning live in saltwater, while the prawns live strickly in freshwater.
Scallops seared in butter for a couple of minutes per side is a superb substitution.
How crazy this may sound to you, but just the corn puree is wonderful as baby food too to introduce your child to corn. However, omit the paprika.
