    Yesterday I made a salsa hot vary hot from jalapenos and red bird eye chili .so I decided to put it to a taste

    I got in the freezer mussels, shrimps and squid.

    I peeled the shrimps the shell I put in a pot with water, onion and  a chopped   carrot to boil and make a stock for the dish.  





    The mussels  and the shrimps I put in the smoker 190 for 45 minutes with oak. 


    When the stock is ready  I  strained  it and add to the stock  diced potatoes, a tab of tomato paste ,a tsp of sugar, 2 tbsp of my salsa ,salt , black pepper  and the squid .

    And it must boil for an hour so the squid will soften. 






    After an hour I added the shrimps and ½ of the mussels to the stock (now it is a thick sauce)

    For 10 minutes. 




    Now you can serve it. 




    With the other ½ of the mussels I left it in the smoker for another 1 ½ hour and I put it in a jar with vegetable oil for future salad. 



    Thanks for looking  at my post

    Looks great,using the prawn shells for stock very classic french cookery. Did you crush them with a potato masher while they were simmering?The potatoes  make me think of portugese caldiera ,a bit of smoked paprika for next time maybe ?Or even a bit of that smoked chorizo? I have 45,000 people born in Portugal,let alone born here of Portugese heritage, living 5 minutes from me . Your dish looks/sounds absolutely smashing.[​IMG]Wallabies for Bledisloe on saturday[​IMG]

        Thanks Moikel ,no i add to the potato's the squid and simmer it long because the squid ,For squid to be soft or you cook it quick or long some of the potato's (the small ones) will melt.and will thicken the sauce.

      the shrimps and the mussels gave it a strong smoky flavor.but the chorizo is a good idea next so lucky the Portuguese food is so good i love it .we used to be next to a big Portuguese community

    when we lived in Johannesburg .

    Sorry it is not your or mine this year the All Blacks got it again [​IMG]
