Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

shells and heads from shrimp

2 shallots, peeled and diced

1 clove garlic, peeled and sliced

4 ancho chilies, seeded and chopped

2 sprigs fresh cilantro, chopped

1 serrano chili, seeded

2 cups fish stock

1 tablespoon masa harina

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

1/2 teaspoon honey

salt to taste

Directions

Heat oil in a small saucepan over high heat. When it just starts to smoke, add shrimp shells and heads and saute for 1 minute, stirring constantly, or until bright pink in color. Add shallots, garlic and anchos. Lower heat and cook, stirring constantly, for about 4 minutes or until shallots, garlic, and anchos are lightly toasted.

Add tomatoes, cilantro and serrano. Raise heat to medium and cook 2 minutes. Add stock. Lower heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Do not reduce. Pour into a blender and puree until smooth. Mix masa harina with enough cold water to make a paste. Then, with the motor running, add to the puree in the blender. Strain through a fine sieve and stir in lime juice, honey and salt. Keep warm until ready to use.

"I made this cake and it was amazing. I used a double batch to make a three tier cake. I iced it with buttercream frosting and some lemon juice and topped it off with shredded coconut and some lemon zest. It looked amazing and tasted even better. Also it was one of the easiest cakes I've ever made. Will definitely make it again!" - frankiebuddy
