Hello people, sorry for my disappearance from the blogging scene! I am back and now trying to get back to my blogging rhythm. I can’t believe that it was almost a month ago that I posted my all time favourite dish – Sweet & Sour Crab. I hope you guys like this dish as much as I do. I was in South of France 2 weeks ago and had wonderful time there! It was warm and the lifestyle is totally different from London. Hopefully, I will get a post written up on a few things that I did while I was there. Stay tuned 😉
I have been wanting to share a few Tapas dishes a while ago. As I looked back at the pictures that I took a few months ago in Barcelona, I have to admit that I miss Tapas so much that I thought I would make a few at home to reminisce about a few of the Tapas that we had while in Barcelona. One of the most common and popular ones has to be Pimientos de Padrón – deep fried mini peppers.
Pimientos de Padrón are small green peppers roughly the size of your thumb. They’re fried in olive oil, salted, and served at many tapas bars. I love the sweetness from the peppers, coupled with a slight sprinkle of salt and the fragrant of olive oil make this Tapas dish fabulous!
Another delicious nibbles that I had was deep fried parsnips. The parsnips are sliced into very thin strips, deep fried in olive oil and sprinkle with either dried or freshly chopped tarragon. To be honest, this is one of the best combinations of flavours I have ever tasted. Tarragon has hints of licorice and lemon, which goes really well with the sweetness of parsnips. I now start to explore different ways to use tarragon in my cooking.
Though these 2 Tapas dishes seem to be really easy to make, but they taste really good and I reckon they are suitable to be served as nibbles for dinner party!
