“PINCHOS” is a famous TAPA served all over spain. With a chilled glass of beer, or a jug of sangria or even a lovely spanish white RIOJA wine you have the simple pleasures of life. Its easy to make at home and you can re-create some magic of SPAIN when ur back home. For this you need “PINCHO”spice powder which can be found in most exotic spice stores or you can buy it online. NITU DIDI has “PINCHO” spice powder in 2 flavors…the regular and the southern one. Today i am using the southern andalucian one.
Pinchos are usually made with pork, but we dont like to cook it with pork so i make it with chicken or lamb.
250 grams of meat of your choice, cubed
2 tablespoons of a good olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of powdered garlic
1 onion , cubed
1 green capsicum, cubed
a little finely chopped parsley
1 tablespoon or more of NITU DIDI YELLOW PINCHO SPICE POWDER
a little salt as most pincho spice powders contain salt
Marinate the meat and vegetables in the above ingredients for about 2 hours. Skewer them into wooden bamboo skewers and grill.
i served it with french fries and sliced baguette topped with grated tomato which i added olive oil and a little grated garlic
