Papas con choco from the Southern Spain
09 June 2014 @ 11:48

      Today I bring you a typical recipe from the province of Cadiz (south western Spain) --althought it is also cooked in another provinces--.

      The dish is named "Potatoes with cuttlefish" and you have not confuse cuttlefish with squid.

      These are the Ingredients for 4 persons: 2 medium cuttlefishes, 5 medium potatoes, 1 green pepper, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 bay leaf, saffron, 1 glass of dry sherry and salt.

      To cook this dish you will need spend one hour and a quarter.

      The first thing we will do is clean the cuttlefish well and cut into three square feet, more or less. In a pot, we shall pour the onion, sliced ​​thin, with a generous drizzle of olive oil; when poached is well, add the minced garlic and chopped green pepper and onion. When the vegetables are very tender, add the cuttlefish, along with the glass of wine; cook until the cuttlefish is tender. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes of about two fingers thick. When cuttlefish is ready, add the potatoes to the pot with the bay leaves and saffron; cover with water and cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender. Finally, add salt to taste.

      Now, you have to put everything on a plate. So, you have to divide the stew into four bowls and garnish the top with a few strands of saffron and bay leaves.

      And this one must be the result:
