Last week I was thinking of our time in Spain,and the wonderful tapa's we ate at the nice bars and restaurants.The most delish chipirones we ate at Bar Gelpi in Callela de Palafrugell.
Now it was time to bring the summer memory back to the Netherlands.
At the local fish market I could get a bunch of chipirones/babysquid.
Make a batter with flour,water,salt & pepper to taste.
Put the squids in the batter and fry them till they are gold brown (3-5 minutes) Serve with fresh lemon and sea salt.
We had a nice warm salad with fennel,gamba and a balsamic dressing from the grill.Off course we had the original patatas frittas con aioli as a side dish.
For the aioli use 1 egg yolk,pepper,salt and 2 cloves garlic 50ml olive oil and 100 ml sunflower oil. Make sure the egg and oil are on room temperature!!. Mix the egg yolk,salt and pepper a little...add the oil slow with the egg yolk and mix untill you have a nice creamy aioli.
It was a very nice adventure,and brings back the good times from Spain in my memory..
