Sweet Heat Round-up: Tapas

Another month of Sweet Heat Challenge is over and it 's time for the round up.  I enjoyed seeing the different Tapas recipes and so many of them reminded me of places where I'd eaten similar dishes.  I hope you enjoy them too.

Fiona, at London Unattached, made 'Gambas pil pil' as part of a Tapas menu for a special dinner.  This takes me back to last family holiday I went on with my parents to Spain, where we had Gambas cooked in salt on a griddle, I can't hear the word Gambas without being taken back there!
At 41 Feasts, Nicola is offering round the nibbles with our drinks.  Wow!  I'd love to try these Sticky spicy almonds

Francesca from Checky's Kitchen made Calamari Fritos con Allioli (Crisp Deep-fried Squid with Garlic Mayonnaise)  This glorious dish reminds me of California where we ate deep fried squid in Cambria with our friends.

This was my own entry of Pepper and Tomato Salsa which is covering the meatballs.

TangoLikeRaindrop went for the classic Patatas Bravas after being inspired by lunch at a local eatery, doesn't that look good?

Over at A Village Pantry, Sheelagh went for something less traditional by making a Mexican Tortilla Lasagne  I'll certainly be bookmarking that recipe.

Sweet Heat Challenge owner, Lyndsey from Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops chose Patatas Bravas for her entry which she served as part of a Tapas Feast of  chorizo with Red Wine; Mini Lamb Meatballs with Romesco Sauce; Prawns with Sherry & Garlic; Baked Mozzarella Mushrooms; Spiced Almonds and Marinated Olives

and last but not least Corina at Searching for Spice has prepared a dish of Pinchos Morunos or Spanish Pork Skewers, a dish bursting with chilli and other spices.

Many thanks to all the entrants to the Sweet Heat Challenge #6, it's been fun hosting.  If you want to join in next month make sure to check Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops on the 1st of April for Sweet Heat #7.

Oh, I hadn't seen this challenge before so thanks for hosting it and bringing it to my attention.
I've been thinking about experimenting with tapas since I read the River Cottage Veg book and all of the great ideas (read various houmous recipes!) in there, tempting me!

What a great round up! If we put all the recipes together for one meal we would be eating one delicious spicy feast! Yum!!

What a lovely round-up that has brought back loads of wonderful memories of long evenings spent in Barcelona or San Sebastian devouring the local tapas offerings!

Lovely round up. There are some seriously tempting entries here. I can't decide what I'd eat first.
