Sweet Heat Round-up: Tapas
Another month of Sweet Heat Challenge is over and it ‘s time for the round up. I enjoyed seeing the different Tapas recipes and so many of them reminded me of places where I’d eaten similar dishes. I hope you enjoy them too.
Fiona, at London Unattached, made ‘Gambas pil pil’ as part of a Tapas menu for a special dinner. This takes me back to last family holiday I went on with my parents to Spain, where we had Gambas cooked in salt on a griddle, I can’t hear the word Gambas without being taken back there!
At 41 Feasts, Nicola is offering round the nibbles with our drinks. Wow! I’d love to try these Sticky spicy almonds
Francesca from Checky’s Kitchen
made Calamari Fritos con Allioli
(Crisp Deep-fried Squid with Garlic Mayonnaise) This glorious dish reminds me of California where we ate deep fried squid in Cambria with our friends.
went for the classic Patatas Bravas
after being inspired by lunch at a local eatery, doesn’t that look good?
Over at A Village Pantry
, Sheelagh went for something less traditional by making a Mexican Tortilla Lasagne
I’ll certainly be bookmarking that recipe.
