Salmorejo: by Gema!

Salmorejo ingredients:
10 or 12 g very ripe, very red tomatoes
2 clove of garlic
1 soupspoon of vinegar
4 soup spoons of virgen olive oil (150gr)
3 or 4 hard-boiled eggs and some chopped up Serrano ham to put on top
200gr or 300gr of bread from the previous day (1 French bread will be ok)
Fresh stick bread or toasted sliced bread to dip in the Salmorejo once it is finished

You also need a food blender

The first thing to do is to cut the old bread in quite thick pieces and moisten it in a bit of water so It won’t be so hard.
To peel the tomatoes depend on how you like the Salmorejo (for me I just do it if I have time,)

Chop the tomatoes up and put them in the food blender with the vinegar, garlic and a little salt Blend this all together and then start to add the old bread bit by bit.
The mixture will very quickly become some kind of a thick soup. At this stage you have to add the oil and to blend this a bit more.
Pour the Salmorejo into a bowl, and chill it in the fridge.
Just before serving garnish with chopped up boil egg and the sliced Serrano ham if you can find it.

enjoy it!!!!

Cabrales’ croquettes (Croquetas al cabrales)

Ingredients for 3 - 4 persons:

- Cabrales cheese, 150 grams (You can also use blue cheese or roquefort)
- Flour, 3 spoons
- Oil, 5 spoons
- Milk, 2 cups
- Egg, 2 units
- Breadcrumbs, 30 grams

1. Put 5 spoons of oil in a pot and heat it, add the flour, stir it quickly and add the milk gradually, stirring with a wooden spoon.

2. Add the chopped cheese and continue stirring until cooked 5 minutes, without stop stirring so it dissolve properly.

3. Then, put it into a flat dish and let it cool. (It needs 2 – 3 hours at least untill it gets cold and it forms a compact mixture, and it is better if you put it in the fridge) If you don’t do this it is impossible to give them form!

4. Once the mixture is ready, form the croquettes and roll it in beaten eggs, then the breadcrumbs. 

5. Heat lot of oil in a pan and fry the croquettes until they get golden - brown. Take them out from the pan and let them drain on absorbent paper or kitchen papaer. Put them in a dish and serve hot.

Eh voila! Bon appetit!
