Recipe Wednesday...TAPAS!

Here's a quick and easy one for parties or snack evening with the man in your life. Tapas are bites of yummy foods that are very popluar in Spain.

Prawn and Bacon Brochettes

This combination of prawns and bacon can be found at most Tapas bars in Spain, as well as in many banquets and receptions. It is an ideal treat for your guests when having a party at home!

• Makes 12 pieces
• 5 oz thinly sliced bacon
• 24 medium to large uncooked, headless prawns, peeled
• Freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 2 lemons, quartered

Cut the bacon into pieces which will wrap generously round the prawns. Place the wrapped prawns down flat on a board and skewer them through the fattest part and the tail, making sure the bacon is firmly fixed. Season generously and drizzle with the oil.

On a high heat, griddle, grill or barbecue the prawn and bacon brochettes for 2-3 minutes on each side, so the bacon crisps up. Or roast in a hot oven (425ºF) on an oiled baking sheet for 8-10 minutes. Squeeze over the juice of the lemon wedges and serve immediately.

Sounds yummy! Btw, I have a new blog -- I decided to stray away from the romance hero and try to appeal to a wider audience. Hopefully it'll work :).
