I love a tapas party! To me, it’s some of my favorite Mediterranean Diet recipes out there!
Tapas are small plates, kind’ve like appetizers originating from Spain. Every Mediterranean country has a version of tapas. These small plates of food can be eaten as an appetizer before a meal, 1 or 2 can be eaten as a snack or you can try 4 or 5 different tapas as a meal. The most fun is to go to a tapas restaurant with a large crowd of people, order up a couple of pitchers of sangria and order all the tapas on the menu!
Tapas are also great to make for a party! If you prep all the ingredients ahead of time you can impress your guests by making one plate of tapas after another. If you have the party in the kitchen, you can cook while everyone enjoys your succulent creations.
Check out my video below showing you how to make 4 tapas in 1 pan! I prepare the following recipes: Red Peppers with Capers, Sizzling Lemon Garlic Shrimp, Spicy Rosemary Olives and Sauteed Swiss Chard with Garlic.
