CHICKEN SURF & TURF ON MINTED PEA PURÉE

Comments : 1 Posted in : CHICKEN FASHION SHOW, FISHERMAN'S FRIENDS, RECIPES on by : blonDISHious

“Mit Pfefferminz bin ich dein Prinz”, this is the title of a German song by an artist called Marius Müller Westernhagen Even though I was never a massive fan of his music I couldn’t agree more with this statement. It means “With peppermint I am your prince”. Well, princess in my case 😉

I love mint in all possible ways. Fresh mint tea is my favourite in the mornings (no, I don’t do coffee…YUCK!). I’m addicted to mint chocolate. Especially After Eights! Mint icecream is most refreshing on a hot summer day. When I go to an Indian restaurant I always order naan bread with mint yogurt. And a British Sunday roast is not a proper British Sunday roast without a good blob of mint sauce. And I could go on and on and on…

Today I share the recipe for a minted pea purée. No matter if you combine it with meat, seafood or chicken it will always be the prince (or… princess) on the plate.

In this recipe I have chosen king prawns and chicken to serve and accompany her Royal Highness, the minted pea purée 👸

And here we go…

INGREDIENTS: (serves 2)
Minted pea purée:
1 small onion
1 garlic glove
1 tbs butter
500 gr frozen peas
1 large handful of fresh mint leaves
100 ml chicken stock
2 – 3 tbs cream
pinch of grounded nutmeg
1 tbs of lemon juice
salt & pepper

Surf & chicken turf:
2 tbs olive oil
2 chicken breast
king prawns (as many as you like to eat)
salt & pepper

METHOD:
Peel the onion & garlic and chop them
Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat
Add the onion & garlic and gently fry until softened and translucent (takes about 5 minutes)
Add peas and chicken stock and let simmer for about 10 minutes
In the meantime heat olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat and fry chicken breast on both sides until brown. Lower the heat and let them cook (depending on the thickness of the chicken breast) for another 5 – 8 minutes until cooked through
Wrap the chicken breasts in aluminum foil to keep them hot, set aside
Now fry the king prawns in some olive oil for about 2 minutes on each side
Put the peas in a blender and add the fresh mint leaves, cream, nutmeg & lemon juice
Purée until nice and smooth
Season to taste, serve with king prawns & chicken on a plate
Decorate with fresh mint leaves.

Vegetarians could swap meat/seafood for halloumi cheese or tofu. Also very tasty.

Enjoy.

Have a blonDISHious day,

    My boyfriend made this for me – as a surprise when I came home from work. This is a tasty and light dish – perfect for summer time. 🙂
