Prawn Oil in the Thermomix

Well, to make the sugar cane prawns, I had to peel a heap of green prawns, and I hate to waste anything that can be used. So just a simple prawn oil.

There are recipes that use onions, carrots, tomato etc. and I have made prawn oil that way. It is great, but this time, it was just as easy to:

Prawn shells into the Thermomix bowl. Chop them for 20 seconds on speed 5 and then add enough rice bran oil to cover them.

Cook for 10 minutes at 100°C on speed soft, then lower the temperature to 90°C and continue for another 20 minutes on speed soft.

Leave the oil mixture to cool for half an hour or so before straining through a fine chinois or muslin.

The resulting oil is delicious and can be used to add extra depth of flavour to fish dishes or mixed through seafood pasta or even just used to cook up some peeled prawns in the wok.
