After having washed, peeled, and thinly sliced carrots, arrange them in a pan. Bake the carrots in a steam oven for about 20 minutes. Alternatively, you can use a steamer. Meanwhile, heat the milk in a saucepan, taking care not to bring it to a boil.

Start the pre-cooling function of LIFE domestic blast chiller at -15 °. As soon as the carrots are cooked remove them from the oven, put them in a blender and add hot milk, cheese, butter, a pinch of pepper, a teaspoon of salt and whisk for about 30 seconds, until all the ingredients will be well blended.

You carrots puree is now ready. It can be served immediately or stored in 8 little aluminium containers, that will be at your disposal at any time an especially when you don’t have enough time to cook.

DEEP FREEZING> SOUPS> VELVETS.

Once the puree has been frozen, remove the containers from the blast chiller and close them safely with their lids.

Keep the carrot puree in your freezer and when you want to heat them in the oven at 200 ° with 50% of steam. Otherwise, you can regenerate them in a  bain-marie without no need to defrost in advance.

SWORDFISH CARPACCIO

SWORDFISH CARPACCIO

Ingredients for 2p:

  • 6 thin slices of swordfish
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 cucumber
  • pink pepper to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 half lemon
  • mint leaves

Before eating raw fish, you need to make it safe by deep freezing it. This will kill any traces of Anisakis, a harmful parasite which is commonly found in fish flesh.

Preparation:
Start the LIFE pre-cooling cycle. Then select the Freezing > Fish> Fillets> Product and set it at room temperature, then place the Swordfish slices on the grill, gently covered with foil.

After a few tens of minutes, the fish will be perfectly defrosted, without any oxidation or discolouration. To complete making the fish safe from Anisakis, keep the slices in the freezer for at least 24 hours. We recommend you place the fish in a freezer bag.

A few hours before serving the Swordfish, take it out of the blast chiller and place it on a grill or oven tray. Insert the product again and start defrosting the fish. Blast Chilling isn’t the same as freezing, it’s a new technology that keeps the organoleptic properties of the food unchanged. Texture, flavour, fragrance and nutrients will be the same of fresh food but it will be safer as all the dangerous bacteria will be eliminated.

Arrange the Swordfish on a serving tray and topping it with a Julienne of thinly sliced carrots and cucumber.

In a bowl prepare the dressing by mixing extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, chopped mint leaves, salt and pink pepper.

Pour the dressing homogeneously on the Swordfish and enjoy it.
