I am trying to write a cooking recipe as homework (should point out I have a tutor who is trying to help me learn Spanish purely for my own development so not a school kid trying to cheat his teacher :-) sadly those days are many years ago) so that I learn to use commands in Spanish.
So far I have the below, (the instructions are to make a duck lasagna fyi):
- ten que precalentar el horno a ciento ochenta grados centígrados
- consigue una bandeja luego ponga un pato en bandeja
- frota aceite, pimienta negra y sal sobre el pato
- cocina por dos horas
Now these may well be wrong. My question though is on the next line I am trying to write.
I want to say something along the lines of
- Leave to cool
- remove all the skin and fat (Retira toda la piel y la grasa)
But "leave to cool" I'm unsure of how to write it. The two suggestions are from Google Translate which I try not to use as I'm aware it is not always correct.
So I think Deje should actually be Deja (as we are giving an order). I don't understand why que is used here? Also would we use the infinitive of enfríe? If not, why?
Deje que el pato se enfríe
Deje que se enfríe
