Tortilla with cheese and herbs

Spain is Europe’s number one meat-eating nation. Chorizo and Serrano ham have also reached our shores. A modest pan-fried cutlet is enough to make people think they’ve turned into a 5-star chef. The fish counter at Alcampo is 30 m long.

Within the house are the culinary bibles Spanske opskrifter, Middelhavskøkkenet and the Italian Sølvskeen. So a month’s stay is by no means enough. But for the simple life, and simple cuisine, we ourselves use a large number of vegetable dishes that are typically Spanish.

Those below are some of the recipes by Denmark’s Radio’s Anne Hjernøe from Andalucia:

Baked goat’s cheese with caramelized apples

Baked goat’s cheese

  • Slices of bread toasted till crunchy
  • Fresh goat’s cheese or some other good cheese

Spread fresh goat’s cheese on toasted bread and bake or grill in the oven until the cheese is hot and starts to turn golden. Eat the baked goat’s cheese with caramelized apple.

Caramelized apples

  • Butter
  • Apples, ccut into wedges
  • Thyme
  • A liberal sprinkling of sugar
  • A sprinkling of salt

Cut the apples into wedges and sauté them in a knob of butter in a pot or pan. When the apples start to take on a little colour, add a sprinkling of sugar, some sprays of fresh thyme and a pinch of salt. Fry the apples till tender and lightly caramelized. Eat the apples with baked goat’s cheese on crunchy bread.


Chorizo in sherry

  • Chorizo
  • Pedro Ximenez
  • Fino

Buy the best, spicy chorizos you can find. Cut them into bite-sized pieces and dry-fry them in a pan or saucepan. When they have begun to take on a little colour, add in a generous splash of fino and a slightly smaller splash of Pedro Ximenez. Fry the sausages over an even heat until the sherry has properly soaked in. Keep an eye on the sausages: the sugar content in the Pedro Ximenez can cause them to burn if given too much powerful heat. Eat with bread and a good salad.


Grilled langoustines with herbs

Grilled langoustines

  • Langoustines

Herb topping:

  • Basil
  • Broad-leaf parsley
  • Garlic
  • Lemon juice
  • Cold-pressed virgin olive oil
  • Salt

Trim the shell off the langoustines and remove the intestines. Place the langoustines on greaseproof paper in a roasting pan. Put all the ingredients for the topping into a mortar or foodprocessor and mash into a coarse dip. Spoon a teaspoonful of topping onto the back of each langoustine and grill in the oven for 3-5 minutes, depending on size. Eat hot with good bread — even, if you like, with the warm tomato bread with garlic


Pan con Tomate

  • Day-old white bread
  • Garlic
  • Sun-ripened tomatoes
  • Cold-pressed virgin olive oil
  • Maldon salt

Toast the bread till golden and crisp. Peel the clove of garlic and cut in two. Use the halved garlic clove to rub over the slice of toast, then cut the tomato in half and rub the tomato over the slice of toast. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, and eat the tomato bread while still warm.


Tortilla with cheese and herbs

  • 6 eggs
  • A dash of milk
  • Maldon salt
  • A large handful of finely chopped herbs to taste
  • 50 g or more, to taste, of dry goat’s or sheep’s cheese cut into thin flakes
  • Cold-pressed virgin olive oil

Mix all the ingredients except the oil in a bowl and stir together well. Put the oil in a pan and heat really well. Pour in the egg mixture and fry the omelette on one side. When the omelette is golden on the bottom and has a firm consistency, use a plate to flip it over, then finish frying on the other side. Eat the omelette while hot, if you like with pan con tomate and a good café con leche.
