POSTED FOR ZAAR WORLD TOUR 5. Popular throughout Spain, tapas are appetizers. They can also form an entire meal and range from simple items such as olives and cheese to more elaborate preparations like garlic shrimp and little meatballs. Although it’s not necessary to dine out when craving these bite-sized eats. Just gather some friends, and serve some of Spain’s tastiest treats. Use tea saucers as plates, and encourage your guests to use toothpicks or their fingers when eating (as is the tradition in Spain). The saffron aioli here provides just the right taste, and a contrasting texture to the crispness of the croquetas. Feel free to play with the potato mixture...if so inclined, stuff some of the croquetas with cooked red pepper and onion. Serve these tasty potato croquetas with any combination of olives, nuts, cheese and fruits you desire. They are popular, so make extra. From Gourmet Magazine.
