musscle and crayfish

Ingredients
For the herb butter: 1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 3/4 cups mixed fresh herbs (such as basil, parsley, tarragon and chives) 1 3/4 cups mixed fresh herbs (such as basil, parsley, tarragon and chives) For the seafood boil: 1/3 cup coarse salt (preferably sea salt) 3 tablespoons coriander seeds 2 tablespoons fennel seeds 1 tablespoon black peppercorns 4 bay leaves 1 to 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes 6 sprigs thyme 2 large white onions, halved (do not peel) 6 stalks celery, cut into large pieces 3 tomatoes, chopped 2 lemons, halved 4 heads garlic, halved crosswise (do not peel) 2 cups dry white wine 3 pounds small red-skinned potatoes 6 ears of corn, husked and halved 3 live lobsters (about 1 1/2 pounds each) 3 pounds mussels, scrubbed and debearded

Directions

  1. Make the herb butter: Pulse the butter and herbs in a food processor until well combined. Form into a log on a sheet of parchment paper, wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the seafood boil: Combine the salt, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, peppercorns, bay leaves, red pepper flakes, thyme, onions, celery, tomatoes, lemons and garlic in a large deep pot; add 6 quarts water. Cover and bring to a boil; uncover and cook 10 minutes. Add the wine and potatoes and return to a simmer; cook until the potatoes are just tender, about 20 minutes. Add the corn and boil until tender, about 8 more minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cut each lobster in half with a chef’s knife, starting at the cross mark on the back of the head (the lobster may continue to move for a minute). Remove the green tomalley and roe, if desired.
  4. Remove the corn and potatoes from the pot using a slotted spoon and transfer to a platter (it’s OK if you remove some of the broth ingredients, too); cover with foil to keep warm. Add the lobsters to the pot and cook until the shells turn pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the mussels, pushing them down into the broth. Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the mussels open, about 5 minutes. Transfer the lobsters and mussels to a platter. (Discard any mussels that do not open.)
  5. Strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve into a small saucepan. Slice the herb butter. Pour the broth into bowls; add the vegetables, seafood and some of the herb butter.

SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE

Ingredients 2 tbsp olive oil 400g/14oz beef mince 1 onion, diced 2 garlic cloves, chopped 100g/3½oz carrot, grated 2 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes 400ml/14fl oz stock (made from stock cube. Ideally beef, but any will do) 400g/14oz dried spaghetti salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Heat a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and once hot add the beef mince and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook the mince until well browned over a medium-high heat (be careful not to burn the mince. It just needs to be a dark brown colour). Once browned, transfer the mince to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Add another tablespoon of oil to the saucepan you browned the mince in and turn the heat to medium. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and fry gently for 5-6 minutes, or until softened and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the grated carrot then pour the mince and any juices in the bowl back into the saucepan.

  3. Add the tomatoes to the pan and stir well to mix. Pour in the stock, bring to a simmer and then reduce the temperature to simmer gently for 45 minutes, or until the sauce is thick and rich. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.

  4. When ready to cook the spaghetti, heat a large saucepan of water and add a pinch of salt. Cook according to the packet instructions. Once the spaghetti is cooked through, drain and add to the pan with the bolognese sauce. Mix well and serve.
