Daughter Miriam asked for Spanish tri-tip for her birthday dinner. Miriam had also requested a vegetable forward salad. Looking for Spanish style salads, I found Williams Sonoma ensalada mixta. The recipes I found online for this mixed salad included more protein than my last ensalada mixta.

Karl’s Tapas: Caballa Frita Rellena (Fried Stuffed Mackerel)
Adapted from Food and Wine recipe
I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. There is a whole selection of fish tapas, many of which involve whole fried small fish. I had wanted to have fried anchovies or sardines, but El Niño had caused a collapse in the local fish supply.

Karl’s Tapas: Tomates Rellenos de Gambas y Jamón Serrano (Tomatoes Stuffed with Shrimp and Serano Ham)
I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. For many of the tapas I was making I at least tried to follow the recipes I was using. For this one, however, I decided that I did not like what I saw at all. Instead, I had ingredients that I had bought for other tapas and though, “Hey, this would go with that.” I am sure that somewhere in Spain they make something similar to this tapas, but I could not find it on-line.
