Finding Paquito
28 June 2021 @ 22:04


"The Paquito" is the result of a campaign to promote the consumption of lamb in Spain. It imitates the popular "Pepito", a beef sandwich which can be found in bars all across Spain. There are countless recipes popping up every day with the only requirements being that it must have lamb and obviously bread as the base ingredients.

The INTEROVIC (Interprofessional Agroalimentaria del Ovino y el Caprino) has launched a campaign in different Spanish bars to include the "Paquito" in their menus. This lamb sandwich has spread to hundreds of establishments in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona and will soon spread to more cities.


The decrease in demand for lamb, suckling lamb and goat meat put producers and INTEROVIC on alert, hence they have launched this campaign to encourage its consumption, especially among the younger generation. This program, supported by the European Union, will last for three years.

There are countless recipes on offer as you can see from the link provided below, but I wanted to share one I came across in a bar in Valencia called Gastromantic.

 

 

Although not especially Spanish, it is more of a fusion sandwich well worth trying.

If you can't go, to make it at home you will need:

Mollete bread -  a Muffin-type roll
2 Leg of lamb steaks
Mayonnaise
Korean chilli
Red cabbage
Cucumber
Yoghurt sauce
lime juice
Feta cheese

  • First, fry or grill the leg of lamb steaks and then shred them with two forks.
  • Mix the yoghurt sauce with a splash of lime.
  • Cut up the red cabbage in thin slices and the cucumber in thin strips and crumble the feta cheese.
  • Mix everything together to make the sandwich filling.
  • Mix some mayonnaise with some Korean chilli or sriracha sauce, whatever you can find more easily. Spread the hot mayonnaise on each piece of bread and then fill with the lamb filling.

It is now ready to eat!

Sounds good - but decent cuts of lamb are hard to find here! The chops are so bony and legs are really expensive!

On the plus side, pork and chicken here are fantastic!
