Place the ají amarillo paste and the prepared ají amarillo base in a bowl.
Add the garlic paste.
Add the sour orange juice and season with seasoning salt, coriander, and ají limo.
At the end add the shrimp/prawn broth.
Serve very hot.
You cook inside a cylinder.
At the bottom of the cylinder there’s a grill where you place the charcoal on.
Then there’s another grill on top of this one where you place the ingredients to be cooked.
Turn on the “cylinder” with its grill.
Place the ají amarillo and the ají mochero paste in a bowl.
Add green onion, salt, lemon juice.
Season the shrimp/prawn tails and the claws.
Add to previous bowl.
Place on panca leaves and put it in the grill in the “cylinder”.
Cook for three minutes taking care that the shrimp/prawns are neither overcooked nor raw.
They should absorb the entire smoked aroma.
To achieve this effect when placing the panca de choclo on the shrimp/prawns, add a little oil around the grill so that the fire starts burning higher and covers the “cylinder”.
Wash the tubers well.
With a small scoop (like the one you use to make watermelon balls with) make little balls from the tubers and set them aside.
Cook them in the vegetable broth with salt.
For the black cassava: make balls from the cassava and separate half.
Cook this half with the purple corn infusion.
Heat or cook the onion and garlic until it turns golden brown.
Add the previously crushed shrimp/prawn heads.
Add the vegetables and the water bit by bit.
Boil until it shrinks, strain, set aside.
Place the shrimp/prawn tails and claws on the dish separately.
Place the julienned red and green onion on the shrimp / prawns.
Also decorate with the julienned colored ajíes and coriander.
Finish by placing the Andean pearls around the food.
Serve the very hot encebichado juice in a small pitcher.
