julio 16, 2022

A nod to traditional tapas, these freezable party canapés of potatoes, red pepper and chorizo can be made in advance.

200g waxy potatoes , such as Charlotte, peeled and cut into 24 x 2cm/3/4in chunks
1 tbsp mild olive oil or sunflower oil
2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary or 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1 large red pepper , deseeded and cut into 24 x 2cm/3/4in chunks
1 large yellow pepper , deseeded and cut into 24 x 2cm/3/4in chunks
200g cooking chorizo , cut into 24 pieces
For the garlic dip
200g half-fat crème fraîche
1 garlic clove , crushed
½ small pack flat-leaf parsley , finely chopped
You will need
24 short bamboo skewers

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Half-fill a large pan with water and bring to the boil. Add the potatoes and return to the boil. Cook for 1 min, then drain in a colander and tip into a bowl. Pour over the olive oil, sprinkle with the rosemary and season. Toss together.

Scatter the potatoes over a large baking tray and cook for 5 mins. Turn the potatoes, add the peppers and cook for a further 10 mins or until just beginning to soften. Set aside to cool.

Thread a chunk of yellow pepper, a chunk of potato and a chunk of red pepper onto bamboo skewers, finishing with a piece of chorizo. Place on a parchment-lined baking tray, cover and chill (up to 8 hrs). To make the dip, mix all the ingredients in a bowl, cover and chill.

When ready to serve, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Bake the skewers for 10 mins or until the vegetables are softened and nicely browned, and the chorizo slices are cooked through. Serve with the dip.
