With the summer nothing better than a cool recipe to fight the heat. At Don Pancho we are experts in this type of food and that is why we want to share with you two of the most refreshing recipes we offer our guests. They are very quick, simple and nutritious, so they are also perfect even if you have no cooking knowledge.
The most refreshing recipes; Seafood cocktail.
The first of the most refreshing recipes of the summer that we want to share with you is the seafood cocktail. It is a summer classic, very common as a starter or to accompany a very cold beer. Although you can buy it ready-made, the best thing is to buy the ingredients separately and cook them, as we do. You’ll love it!
- Krissian type crab sticks
- Peeled shrimp
- Rejo (squid)
- Red pepper
- Green pepper
- Onion (sweet)
- Black olive (can be replaced by green)
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Sherry wine vinegar
Para comenzar, pon a cocer al vapor las gambas, el rejo (pota) y el mejillón. Es importante que no excedas el tiempo de cocción, para que los ingredientes no queden gomosos. Mientras se cocina, corta en brunoise (dados pequeños) los vegetales. Corta en rodajas los palitos de cangrejo. Enfría los alimentos cocinados al vapor y combina con el resto de ingredientes. Añade las aceitunas, un poco de sal, un chorro de aceite de oliva y el vinagre. Mezcla todo y sirve de inmediato.
To begin with, steam the prawns, the rejo (squid) and the mussels. It is important that you do not exceed the cooking time, so that the ingredients do not become rubbery. While cooking, cut the vegetables into small cubes. Slice the crab sticks. Chill the steamed food and combine with the rest of the ingredients. Add the olives, a little salt, a dash of olive oil and the vinegar. Mix everything together and serve immediately.
The most refreshing recipes; gazpacho flan
It could be said that among the most refreshing recipes of the summer, the most remarkable is the gazpacho. In Don Pancho we have found the way to make a more original and fun preparation. This is our recipe:
- 3 ripe tomatoes (preferably pear shaped)
- 80 g. cucumber
- 80 g. red pepper
- 50 g. green pepper
- 50 g. onion
- 50 g bread
- 50 g. ground almond
- 30 cl extra virgin olive oil
- 2 sheets of gelatine
- 1 clove of garlic
Ingredients for the garnish:
- 1 piece of red pepper
- 1 piece of green pepper
- 1 spring onion or sweet onion
- 1 tomato in concasse
Preparation of the gazpacho flan:
Moisturize the gelatine according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Blanch the tomato and remove the skin and seeds. Once ready, mix all the ingredients in a bowl, except the gelatine, and mash. Then add the gelatine and crush some more. When it is well integrated, distribute it in individual moulds and keep it in the fridge until it is solid.
On the other hand, chop the ingredients of the garnish, except the chives. Pour them into a frying pan, with a pinch of olive oil and salt and pepper.
For the presentation, unmould, brown the sides with a blowtorch (optional) and place the garnish. Chop some chives and add them to give a special touch.
