Migas con chorizo

Migas are basically fried breadcrumbs although they can also be made with semolina. But they are delicious! You can add whatever you like but traditionally they are eaten with chorizo, belly pork, garlic and melon. Sometimes sardines are added – it all depends on the time of the year and what you have available.

Soak three stale loaves of bread in water.

Cutting up the bread

Heat some olive oil in a large frying pan and then fry quite a few squashed cloves of garlic with their skins on. Let them cook gently so that they soften without colouring. Add some sliced chorizo and fry for another couple of minutes before transferring to a plate.

Cut the bread into the pan to the size of small peas. Fry gently for 5-10 minutes. Season with salt and then return the garlic and chorizo to the pan.

Serve with melon and fried green peppers.
