Three quick Spanish ham tapas recipes for frenzied moments


Tapas are to be quick in fact. Today we want to inspire you to cook three quick and easy tapas recipes. Tapas are something different that could help you to impress your friends and guests, even more with Spanish ham. These tapas can take no more than 15 minutes to be cooked and served, so is a perfect option when we don’t have enough time to cook.


THE FANTASTIC AND SIMPLY SPANISH HAM TAPA

In Spain we usually start special dinners or events with a plate of hand-sliced jamon. Normally accompany with other traditional foods: chorizo or spicy sausage, cheese… This recipe is really easy: buy some hand-sliced Spanish ham and decorate a plate like a star (see photo). Do the same with chorizo and cheese. What kind of cheese? We recommend Spanish Zamorano ‘Pago Los Vivales’ Curado. Perfect partners.



THE TASTY TOASTED BREAD SLICES TOPPED WITH SERRANO HAM



First of all toast bread slices, and rub each slice with garlic and then with fresh tomato, being generous with the amount on each slice. Spinkle with salt (not too much, ham is already so salad). Then a trickle of extra virgin olive oil (we recommend ‘Castillo de Canena’) and a thin slice of our delicious Spanish ham in the top.


THE REALLY DELICIOUS AND SPECIAL FLAVOURED GRILLED SERRANO AND MANCHEGO



Toast the bread and spread with balsamic reduction. Drizzle with olive oil and the chopped garlic. Top it off with a slice of cheese and Spanish ham. Then grill until the cheese begins to melt and serve.



Remember to pair your tapas with a hard Spanish red wine. Everything is better with a good wine. We have a large cellar for you with all types of wines. Have a look!
