Paella is not a quick and easy dish and not really one you can prepare ahead either - but it's well worth the effort. Tortilla - fine, you can do well ahead, ditto meatballs and the chorizo.
Prawns - just garlic and white wine? Is that Spanish?

Squid is surprisingly easy - cut into rings with kitchen scissors, dust in flour which has a bit of paprika mixed in, then fry very quickly. Serve with lemon mayonnaise.

Hello Sal!
Just thinking of you today as i tohught it was your 'What's for dinner?' thread.
How goes it?

I don't thi nk paella is hard.
I often make it and it waits and keeps for a long time while I get pissed entertain my guests.

Fry garlic and onions and other veg, add rice and stock until nearly gone, put shellfish in, cover with foil and heat v v low or off. Good for at least 90 mins.

Christ, don't start pandering to whims.

You know yourself how hard studying is around a family and a job.
Oh yes, in that case, make an effort

I like a spanishy tomato salad : tomatoes cut into chunks, small amount of chopped red onion, olive oil, sherry vinegar, chopped parsley. Delicious.

There's some good tapas recipes on good food website.
Vodka flamed chorizo is impressive and easy
There's a nice prawn recipe on there with sherry and red chilis I think.

We spent many happy evening in our favourite tapas restaurant in Fuerteventura in the summer and this is what we usually order.

tomato and cheese - simply chopped toms and local cheese
asparagus wrapped in parma ham
canarian potatoes - boiled new pots, boiled with lashings of salt
meat balls
spicy prawns
chicken wings
garlic muscles in half shell
chorizo
bread and alioli dip. (Alioli is a must for us! And available in the dip section at Morrisons!! Yellow pot)
Russian salad - salad with potatoes, tuna, peppers, onion and garlic. We make it ourselves at home and I can e-mail you the recipe if you want it.

MaureenMLove Thu 20-Oct-11 22:18:36

In fact, I'm going away for the weekend, so I'll e-mail the recipe, whether you want it or not! grin
