This delicious dip is actually a healthy and quick appetiser that can be made a day or two ahead of time. The recipe is based on one from Alex Raij, chef of a tiny tapas bar, Tía Pol, in New York City. WINE: We enjoyed these tapas accompanied by a dry Riesling and I was quite surprised at the great match. The walnuts and the chili pepper's flavors were actually heightened and enjoyable. Try a 2005 Riesling Firestone Vineyard Select or a fruity, off-dry Riesling like 1999 Kiona White Riesling.
While this is usually served as a tapa, it is too good not to eat as a main course. After trying the ones that were posted here on Zaar, I found myself still searching for the gambas we had in Barcelona. Finally I found the recipe with the flavor and creaminess of the dish we fell in love with in Spain! The same dish can be made with squid, cut into rings, or scallops. Serve with lots of warm crusty bread to sop up the sauce…. You will not want to waste a drop! (Make sure you are "warming" the olive oil and the butter, not cooking it off..... cause you'll want every last bit of it for the sauce)
This is a great Cherry Brandy recipe from Spain. All you need is 2 One Quart jars or two pretty bottles that will hold a quart each and about 6 months. The cherries are the most delicious part of this recipe -- be sure to eat them. They are great with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The recipe was given to me by my friend from Jerez (Spain). That Amaretto is optional, but highly recommended.
