    I love berkshire. Brother in law is raising one for me right now. By this summer I hope to feel comfortable enough butchering because I want to do two pigs from piglets to table May-September.

    Hello to all, today I'm gonna post one of my favorite dishes. This kind of food, I understand that it could be strange for some of you, since it is something very specific of the mediterranean spanish coast.

    That dish it's called "fideuá", in allusion to the principal ingredient, a kind of noodles, "fideos" in spanish language and also in the dialect of the mediterranean zone.

    The principal characteristic of this food is that is realized in a big frying pan called "paella"... Yes, the famous plate of rice takes the name of the frying pan where it is realized, it happens with many plates of the gastronomic mediterranean culture, like "puchero", "caldereta" or "parrillada".

    You can put on the "fideuá" many sea ingredients (for meat is better you use rice) but the final result unfailingly has to be "dry", nothing of liquid must stay on it later cook because the "pasta" must have absorbed everything, because of it it's better to prepare a good broth of shellfish to give good flavor to the noodles.

    In this case I have used shrimps, squids of fishhook and big red shrimps (aristaeopsis edwardsiana). First I did the "fumet" with the heads of the shrimps and some rock fish, and then I cooked the noodles adding a bit of saffron.

    Importantly!... The "paellas" never take onion because it has the property of softening the grains of rice or the noodles and the result is doughy and bad. So, far of this, we look for an "al dente" hard texture.

    Hope you like.


    Namaste.

    I forgot to say that besides saffron (the most wonderful spice in the world) it takes a base with a bit of garlic, ñoras (Capsicum annuum), white wine, red pepper and of course, olive oil.

    To make it dry, you must to put inside just the double proportion of "fumet" than the noodles/rice (cup measure)... But always it depends of the quality of the water (I mean hard o soft on mineral terms).


    Namaste.
