Be healthy and be happy in Spain
30 July 2020

      A few days ago, the British Government made the decision to force British tourists to be quarantined upon returning home from Spain. This seemed to me very hard news, for British tourists and for tourism entrepreneurs in Spain. Now I will explain my point of view.

      It is true that now in Spain there are many sprouts of Covid-19; but, when I see the News, on television, they always say that the outbreaks have occurred in "Nightlife" (in private parties, botellon, etc.). Note: "Botellón" is a massive gathering of young people to drink cheaper than in a disco. This is a big problem, because young people usually don't want to wear a mask when they go out to have fun at night; nor do they want to keep their distance from other young people. I think that the authorities should ban this type of party.

      For example, the celebration of a soccer victory is a problem, as happened in July 2018, when England beat Sweden, to advance to the Champion Semifinals.

      Young people seems not to be afraid at night:

Look at so many people in a botellon​​​​​​​

So many people in a disco​​​​​​​

      However, I have never heard of a new outbreak appearing in a supermarket, or in a pharmacy, or on a street; no, because, in those places, almost everyone has a mask and keeps the social distance, which the Spanish government asked us to do. So I think that if we listen to what the experts recommend, we should have no problem.

      Therefore, I hope that the British Government will think about the decision and trust to Spain. And if you decide to come to Spain --or if you live here-- please be healthy and be happy.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.

A fish recipe in Spain for this summer
19 July 2020

      Today I would like to show you a recipe called "Monkfish and zucchini with chorizo pepper sauce", by the great Spanish chef, Karlos Arguiñano.

       Karlos Arguiñano says that: "A monkfish is a white fish that contains proteins of high biological value, and that has many vitamins and minerals that make this dish a tasty and healthy menu".

A monkfish

Monkfish tails

      These are the Ingredients for 4 people:

1 monkfish tail (500 grams)

1 zucchini

4 cloves of garlic

2 red onions

1 apple

5 dried red peppers

20 grams of breadcrumb

100 milliliters of white wine

Flour

I beaten egg

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt

Parsley

A green zucchini

Cloves of garlic

Red onions

Apple

Dried red peppers

Breadcrumb

White wine

Flour

Beaten egg

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt

Parsley

        And this is the elaboration of the recipe:

      Remove the stems from the dried red peppers. Put them in a saucepan and cook them for 20 minutes. Move away, take the meat out and reserve it. Also reserve 400 ml of the cooking water from the dried red peppers.

      Peel the garlic cloves, cut them into slices and brown them in a saucepan with a little bit of olive oil. Peel the red onions, dice them and add them. Sauté the onions until golden. Peel the apple, remove the core, cut it and add it. Also add the meat of the dried red peppers, the breadcrumbs, the white wine and the cooking water of the dried red peppers. Cook the sauce over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Transfer it through the food mill to a saucepan and keep it warm.

      Wash the zucchini and cut it (with skin) into half centimetre slices. Season, coat them with flour and beaten egg and fry them in a pan with oil. Remove and drain them on a plate covered with absorbent kitchen paper.

      Cut the fish into fillets ½ centimetre thick. Coat them with flour and beaten egg and fry them in the same pan where you fried the zucchini. Drain them on a plate covered with absorbent kitchen paper.

      Serve on each plate a little bit of sauce and a few pieces of fish and a few pieces of zucchini. Decorate the dishes with some parsley leaves.

      Well, I hope that you have liked this recipe and hope that you will try to cook it very soon.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.
