Gulas with prawns & Pork Tenderloin Pedro Ximenez

Christmas is here!!

I can’t believe that we have been learning Spanish recipes for 12 months already! I would like to thank everyone, Lou and Ged for thinking of me for this page and all of you for your support!

Of course, this month a typical Christmas recipe, although in Spain it depends on the province. The most typical is seafood as a starter and a meat or a fish dish as main course. Lets start!!! I have chosen two that are very easy. Gulas with prawns as starter and Sirloin of pork Pedro Ximenez.

Gulas with prawns
1 pack of gulas
250 gr of prawns
2-3 garlic cloves
1 chili
olive oil
white wine

  1. Peel the prawns, cut 1 garlic clove into slices.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry 1-2 cloves of garlic cloves and the chili.
  3. When the garlic is golden, add prawns and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add sliced garlic and cook for another minute. Add the wine and gulas, cook for 2 minutes.
