    canarygirl's Note:

    This dish comes from the Canary Islands. It is a staple there, and goes with just about everything! Try it with "papas arrugadas" (small boiled potatoes with salt and lemon) for a Canary Island specialty! Delicious! It keeps well in the refrigerator, and is even better after a day or two. Serve at room temperature.

      Excellent flavour and appearance and wonderful on potatoes. The first time I made it, it curdled and didn't look right, but the memory of the flavour stayed with me. I made it a second time last night, and this time I made sure to do things more carefully to get a smooth, creamy sauce which did not separate. I subbed sherry vinegar and that worked fine. Any vinegar would. Superb!

      This is sooo good and authentic. Identical to what I tasted many years ago on holiday in Gran Canaria. Had recipes for this before, they are in the bin, bacause this is the best! Made it twice now, first time used with potatoes and last night with large prawns, so it was time to send in a review!
