tapas @ la casa.













This was supernice: salpicon de langostino (shrimp in caper and cornichon vinaigrette) from Penelope Casas' Tapas. We, um, had it for breakfast. On bread. We shall have it again.

Looks really yummy! Worth trying. The type of food I'd also love for breakfast.

Hey there, AggieL...

It is thoroughly yummy, and super easy...the only thing about having it for breakfast is that it's supposed to marinate for at least 2 hours. So you have the choice of marinating it overnight (which we did one time) and marinating it for 30 or 40 minutes (which we did the other time). I think I actually preferred the shorter marinade b/c the shrimpiness was still coming through loud and clear.

So try it! And report back....

Damn! Penelope's tapas book keeps staring at me from the bookshelf, and I keep thinking I need to try some of her tapas but never do.

Looks really good. Guess I might have to now. Although I'm pretty sure I couldn't do caper cornichon vinaigrette for breakfast...

It's actually a surprisingly interesting book. My dad got it as a Xmas gift last year and it went into his pile of unused cookbooks, so I kind of, mmm, "borrowed" it, with pretty low expectations. But I've found 10 or so things I can see making sometime soon.

And yeah, shrimp for breakfast...I'm happy to see them any time of day.
