I miss “gourmet” seafood from Galicia at Christmas. Enjoy it you too!

Hi amigos y amigas! You don’t know how much I miss seafood from Galicia at Christmas while in Sweden. In Spain we have different traditions about Christmas food as there is not a specific meal for just Christmas. Yes we have something very Spanish “turrón” as dessert but main dishes are more about eating delicious delis, most mariscos, or seafood as we say in Spain.

As Galician seafood is one of the best in the world (and so tasty!), you can understand I do miss the taste. It’s nothing wrong with Swedish “prince korvar” or “köttbullar” at Christmas, but for me nothing like Galician seefood when there is something to celebrate, specially at this time of the year! I am going to Spain for New Year so I’ll have the change to enjoy it in a few weeks!

Meanwhile I share with you a recipe like in the picture (photo: Pedro Moreno) with gratin scallops and delicious Galician white wine, Albariño! Now in Sweden too at Systembolaget.

Here come my recipe for four people to you: gourmet gratin scallops with Albariño wine. And here the ingrediens:
8 scallops
2 large onions
50 g of ham
½ tbsp paprika
½ l Albariño wine

First you clean the scallops leacing the meat and the coral in the shell. Onion peeled and finely chopped, sauté with olive oil and ham. When it takes color, add the paprika. Add the wine. Halve and remove.
Season the scallops and top with the onion and ham.Finally, sprinkle the bread crumbs and grill until the scallops are cooked.
If you like seafood,  and “gourmet” you’ll love it! Delicious! Viva Galician seefood and Feelgood! Viva Galicia!
