“This is a great recipe that can be used as a hot appetizer (tapa) or can be served as a main dish. It has been adapted for North American/Northern European taste from "The Tapas Cookbook". I often serve it at gatherings where I invite my European and Spanish friends for "Wine and Tapas". Nobody ever leaves hungry with the assortment of tapas provided. Keep checking back to my recipes as I will continually add tapa recipes in the future. A "Wine and Tapa" party is an excellent idea for the holiday season. The recipe can be made in advance and reheated in the microwave.”
