Tapas recipes

Make a Spanish feast with our tapas recipes. Whether you’re having people over or just fancy a taste of Spain at home, we’ve got all sorts of recipes for you to explore. Try your hand at croquetas from Jose Pizzaro, and make your own aioli. Everybody loves patatas bravas, and a plate of king prawns with garlic and chilli is going to put smiles on faces.

When it comes to Spanish recipes, you can’t beat a classic tortilla with a glass of cold cerveza. Equally, a pile of deep-fried calamari with romesco sauce is finger-food ad it’s finest. If you need prep ahead tapas, our chickpea and chorizo stew is one of those dishes that gets more flavourful the longer you leave it.
