Miriam had requested gazpacho for Sunday’s dinner. Her husband, Chris, does not particularly like gazpacho. Jan suggested that I make a variety of tapas to go with the cold soup, so they could both be happy.

Karl’s Tapas Dinner

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.

Karl’s Tapas: Piquillo Rellenos de Cordero (Sweet Mini Peppers Stuffed with Lamb)
I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. I got the idea for this tapas from a Martha Stewart recipe and then ignored everything about it. She cooked and peeled the peppers and then stuffed them with a cold shrimp salad. I decided to stuff the peppers with lamb and then roasted them.

Karl’s Tapas: Gazpacho (Cold Tomato Soup)
I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. This whole meal started because Miriam wanted this cold tomato soup. Gazpacho may be served as a tapas. I made this gazpacho a bit simpler than my last, simply because was making so many other dishes. Jan thinks of this dish as salsa soup.

Karl’s Tapas: Gambas al Ajillo (Shrimp Scampi)
Adapted from a Food and Wine recipe
I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. This is a simple tapas that you can serve with other tapas or alone with crusty bread. One of the problems with making tapas is the rush at the end to finishing cooking everything at once. You can set up this dish up early, ready to do the final cooking just before serving.
