Rarely are dishes this simple this good. Something about lots of slow-braised rabbit and whole garlic cloves, spiked with sweet peas and a splash of vinegar makes this recipe far greater than the sum of its parts.
Clams steamed in a spicy Spanish tomato sauce. This dish is a knockout. Eat it with a fork in one hand, a hunk of crust bread in another. A damn good appetizer or light dinner.
In hot weather, a cold, crunchy-spicy-acidic ceviche really hits the spot. I make it all the time. But you just can’t make ceviche with any old fish. Any parasites living in the fish will survive the citrus bath. Here’s my ceviche recipe and how to make your own ceviche without fear of parasites.
This is my signature dish for dove season. Grilled dove is one of my favorites, and this Spanish-inspired take on them never fails to please.
The Iberian tradition of combining shellfish and pork is one of the great pairings in the world. Here is the most famous of the many such dishes: Spanish clams and chorizo.
Fresh cured anchovies sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn’t. This is more like a ceviche than the red, salty anchovies you get in a can. Called boquerones in Spain and gavros in Greece, these are fantastic on crackers or by themselves.
