Step by step preparation

  • Put the blade accessory in the Chefbot’s glass and insert the rice. Program 30 seconds at speed 10 and close.
  • Open the Chefbot, remove the rice and set aside.
  • Peel the prawns and set aside the bodies.
  • Remove the blade accessory from the Chefbot and place the stir paddle accessory in the cup. Add 1 litre of water, the shells and the shrimp heads and programme 14 minutes at 100°C, speed 1 and close.
  • Open the Chefbot and, taking care not to burn yourself, strain the fumet, discarding the shrimp heads and shells, and set aside.
  • Wash the glass of the Chefbot and insert the blade accessory.
  • Add the carrot, onion and garlic and set at speed 7 for 30 seconds and close.
  • Open the Chefbot and, using the spatula, remove any leftovers from the walls.
  • Replace the blade accessory with the stir paddle accessory, add the crushed tomato, oil and butter, set for 7 minutes at 120°C, speed 1 and close.
  • Add the cognac and program 2 minutes at 120°C, speed 1, leaving the steam outlet cap open so that the alcohol evaporates.
  • Open the Chefbot, add the rice that you have reserved and programme 6 minutes at 100°C, speed 1 and close.
  • Add the reserved fumet, cream and salt and programme 11 minutes at 100°C, speed 1.
  • Open the Chefbot, remove the stir paddle accessory, insert the blade accessory, set 1 minute at speed 10 and close.
  • Open the Chefbot, add the shrimp bodies and leave to stand for 2 minutes in the glass, so that they cook with the heat of the cream.
  • Use the spatula to transfer the cream to the bowls or plates where it is to be served.
