PORK FEET & SNAILS IN HOT SAUCE http://recipespicbypic.blogspot.com
PORK FEET & SNAILS IN HOT SAUCE <ul><li>Ingredients for 4 servings Snails: 1 kg of snails, 1 garlic head, 100 grs of cured ham, 100 grs of bacon, 350 grs of onion/garlic and tomatoe sofrito (this time I bought a tin with a good one), 3 springs of fresh thyme, 1 spring of fresh rosemary, 1 bay leaf, 3 red hot chilli peppers (or 2 if 3 is too much), 2 glasses of water (snails cooking) and 1 of white dry wine (snails cooking), some springs of parsley, 5 toasted almonds, 5 toasted hazelnuts, salt and olive oil. </li></ul>
PORK FEET & SNAILS IN HOT SAUCE <ul><li>First of all, clean throughly the snail many times under tap water. Rub their shells and make sure nothing keeps adhered to them. The snails that don’t come out their shells should be placed in hot water, if they still don’t come out, discard. Once clean, put them in a deep casserole with cold water covering them and turn on the heat the lowest possible. When they start to feel the warmness, they’ll try to scape and will come out of their shells. When the water starts boiling their body will be out and that makes it easy to eat them. Let them boil only one minute. Rinse. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Start the sofrito with the olive oil, the cured ham and bacon. When they change their colour, add the onion, garlic and tomatoe (1 big onion, 1 garlic clove and 6 tomatoes grated). Cook it until done. </li></ul><ul><li>If you buy the sofrito in a can then have it for 5 minutes, if you do it yourself cook at medium heat until the tomatoe gets dark and oily. </li></ul>PORK FEET & SNAILS IN HOT SAUCE

PORK FEET & SNAILS IN HOT SAUCE <ul><li>Ingredients for 4 servings (pork feet): Ask your butcher to cut the pork feet as seen in the pic. You will need 4 feets, 1 garlic head, 1 bay leaf, a small bunch of black round pepper (12 balls) and water. </li></ul><ul><li>Place the feet in a casserole with all the ingredients and cover with water. Turn heat on and have it very low and covered until the feet are done. It will take aprox 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Take the bones away and place inside a round object to get this timbal shape. </li></ul>
PORK FEET & SNAILS IN HOT SAUCE <ul><li>Present with some snails, some sauce on the feet timbal and a spring of rosemary on top. </li></ul><ul><li>I had some problems with the round feet timbal shape. Next time instead of taking the bones out, I’ll coat the feet in flour and fry in olive oil. It won’t be so easy to eat, but I think it will improve the dish. </li></ul><ul><li>This one was spectacular though :D </li></ul>
