One of the simplest and yet most popular tapa servings is the Montado. Little slices of toasted bread on which a variety of food may be served.
It might be prawns, shrimps, anchovies, peppers or spicy chicken. Many bars serve them but they are easy to make at home and serve as little snacks for your friends and family.
We're going to suggest three versions and, in the coming days, offer the recipes for those. Here's the first one. Montado casa Vergara is for those who enjoy Spanish seafood.
- 1 baguette
- Oil for brushing
- 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 7 ounces of smoked salmon or trout
- 12 white anchovies (boquerones)
- 3 tablespoons of French dressing (vinagreta)
- 24 small shrimps
Slice the baguettes into rounds about half an inch thick and brush with a little oil. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for about five minutes, or until golden brown. Spread the toasted bread slices with a little of the mayonnaise. Layer the smoked fish and boquerones. Dress with the vinagreta, arrange a couple of the shrimps and top it off with a little mayonnaise.
