A dear friend of mine gave me a while ago a group of recipes from restaurants at Cordoba and I loved this one because it was easy to do and looks delicious, so I must do it.
Cordoba is a region of Spain that is popular for its olive oil, wine and food, and of course for its people; as all cities of the South, they are happy people and know how to enjoy life without too many things, after all they have the sun, a great weather, a very rich soil and the sea (not that far anyway) what else do you need?.
Ingredients300 grams Noodles ½ onion ½ red pepper ½ leek 1 garlic clove 1 leaf bay 1 cayenne 12 prawns 350 grams Monkfish Salt Olive oil 100 ml. white wine 1500 ml. fumet (fish stock)
We will need a wide pan, the best option is a “paellera”, but any other large pan would do.
Heat oil on a large pan and sauté in it the monkfish, when is golden brown add the veggies finely chopped, a leaf of bay and cayenne, cook on low heat until the veggies are poached. Then pour the wine and let the alcohol evaporate, now add the stock, when it begins to boil, add the noodles and the prawns and cook until they are done and the liquid is almost all gone.
