August 7th, 2018 | main dishes

BBQ with a difference: hot smoked salmon BBQ with a difference: hot smoked salmon

We use a Cobb Grill, which is very handy because you can take it everywhere and it can also be on the table so everyone can barbecue for themselves. In this grill for the hot smoking we need only six charcoal briquettes or one grill “tablet”.

As a salad, for example, a leaf salad with peach or a wild herb salad is suitable.

No Bolognese, no Ragú – but delicious!

Octopus Galician style

Pulpo á la Gallega or Pulpo á feira (carnival style) is the name of this artful, but simple dish that you can eat everywhere in the streets of Barcelona’s port area. A traditional dish, which uses dried Octopus on the big festivals. Anyhow, in the bars in the “Barrio Gótico” in Barcelona’s gothic quarter, cooked Octopus is used. Our favorite shore leave place in Barcelona is the tapas bar “Celta Pulpería“. Anyone who should believe the preparation of Pulpo á feira is difficult, definitely is wrong!
