Prawns With Fino Sherry

A Spanish Tapas Dish

By In Recipes
Does anyone fully comprehend the wonders of Google search? For some unfathomable reason many a search ends up on SpittoonExtra while looking for tapas recipes. I’ve no idea why this particular term has become associated with this blog but of course all visitors are welcome. This Prawns with Fino Sherry tapas dish is simplicity itself to make; ensure the prawns are ultra fresh, the newly opened fino ready to hand and the mint shredded for the final garnish.

While certainly a tapas dish with its Spanish fino, it could equally pass as a Venetian Cicchetti (or Italian Spuntini), though you might like to change the sherry for a dry Italian vermouth or a dry Marsala.
