Known as champinones al ajillo. You'll find this item on any Spanish tapas' bar menu. Use the best quality ingredients you can find! Serve the mushrooms with crusty bread and a glass of Spanish wine...that's an order! Source: Chef Miguel Cueto as found online. So easy to prepare!
Recipe from Ryland, Peters, and Small's Tapas Cookbook. These olives need to marinate at room temperature for 6 days prior to serving, so plan ahead. They make a wonderful appetizer for any party and are perfect gifts around the holidays (put them in pretty square glass jars that you find at craft stores)!
In Spanish tavernas, these shrimp; fragrant with garlic and olive oil; are brought to the table sizzling in a little metal pan. Have plenty of bread on hand to sop up the delicious pan juices. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
Slightly smoky, subtly Spanish, simply sensational shrimp--a Whole Foods recipe. The elegant stacked presentation is so pretty. Smoked Spanish paprika adds subtle character to this dish and can be used in a host of other recipes such as beans, tacos and salad dressings. Chicken broth may be substituted for the vegetable broth.
Rumor has it that the second Zaar World Tour is starting soon and I'm quickly trying to post recipes in preparation for the next international eat-a-thon (Hee hee). Not sure if you would consider this more Spanish or Mexican. For those not familiar, Manchego cheese is a golden sheep's milk cheese native to Spain which comes in three forms based on aging. For this recipe, the two younger varieties would work best. Be sure to use a cured (not fresh) chorizo. You can make these using full sized tortillas or on tiny ones for a delicious appetizer. (10/18: I have updated the directions to make this a bit clearer.)
These tasty tapas snacks are ready in just 5 minutes, the perfect accompaniment for a drinks, tapas or summer cocktail party. Jamón serrano is a Spanish ham & similar to prosciutto - which you could use instead. Try to use sun ripened (not cold frame) tomatoes - they really make a huge difference to this recipe! This recipe serves 10 to 12 people, with other accompaniments on offer.
French, Spanish and Scottish fusion cooking at its best!
Take large gambas (king prawns or giant shrimp) and sauté them in garlic butter.....then add a generous slug of Scotch whisky - set them alight - flambé them for a minute or so...........serve them hot with crusty bread to mop up all the sinful garlic butter and whisky juices - maybe with a salad of mixed baby leaves! Sublime...........divine decadence on a platter! I like these - can you tell??! Allow 2 to 3 per person for a starter and about 4 to 5 per person for a main course, when served with accompaniments. Tactile eating - so provide plenty of napkins or finger bowls!
