The home cooks of MasterChef are ready for another Mystery Box Challenge and tonight it features prawns. They’ll have 45 minutes. The judges choose the three standout dishes. First is from Becky who made Grilled Prawns with Salsa Verde and Saffron Rice. Chef Ramsay says well done. Joe says the dish has a modern twist. Christine made Spot Prawns with Pineapple Broth. Yum. Graham says it’s a homerun. Chef Ramsay loves it. Finally, David Martinez is up and he made Spot Prawn Ceviche. Joe says it has a great sense of balance and Chef Ramsay says you can’t stop eating it.
The winning dish is David’s. He will be in charge of the Elimination. The three ingredients and he gets to choose from are bacon, corn and beets. They will incorporate this ingredient into a dessert. David chooses the corn and gets an advantage by getting to ask questions and plus he gets five minutes in the pantry alone. But as he exits, he realizes he forgot the rice, which is the main ingredient in his dish! But Becky winds up picking up some rice as a backup plan and actually gives it to him to save his recipe, will that come back to bite her in the butt?
The home cooks are having a hard time. Joe says the stuff at David’s station tastes crappy. When time is up David goes first with Corn and Rice Pudding with Salted Caramel Sauce. Joe calls it disgusting. Chef Ramsay can’t taste the corn.
Next is Becky with Popcorn and Panna Cotta. Graham says it is delicious. Chef Ramsay says she doesn’t disappoint. Christine is up with Corn & Coconut Pudding. Joe says it has a lot going on. Monti made Corn Souffle. Chef Ramsay says it’s amazing. Felix made Corn Profiteroles. Graham says it’s far beneath her and Chef Ramsay says there’s no texture there and it’s her worst dish.
Frank made Corn Budino with Chocolate Ganache. Chef Ramsay says it’s delicious with a great texture. Josh made Corn Crème Brulee with Corn Caramel. Joe says it looks really unappetizing and it’s too sweet. Graham says it does not look appetizing. He may be going right back home.
The judges discuss and the winning dishes are Frank’s and Becky’s. Becky’s winning an astonishing number of these challenges, will she be your next MasterChef? So Frank and Becky will be team captains. The worst dishes came from Josh, Felix and David. Josh is safe. He did make it back, so it would be a shame to see him go so quickly. So David or Felix. Chef Ramsay says made the worst desserts and Felix steps forward and will be the one to leave MasterChef tonight.
