Watermelon and Tomatoe Gazpacho shots

Red for Ferrari, for passion and for this gazpacho. There’s only 3 minutes left for the big race and I say… ¡Vamos Alonso! What a beautiful day today!

What do I eager for when summer gets closer? A good vacation… for example a cruise by the Mediterranean sea; I also crave for good food and wine without having to prepare it myself in the heat of the kitchen and I also feel the need for a fresh and revitalizing gazpacho!

Do you agree with me? Just in case a Mediterranean cruise is not possible, prepare some gazpacho shots, have them fresh, close your eyes and drink them while you rest in your favorite hammock by the pool (for those of you without a pool, a bucket full of ice cubs is always a good idea for your feet ;D)

Here there’s no cooking involved except for the mussels; which takes what? 5 minutes? That’s nothing! You only need to take seeds away, the tomatoe peels and cut all ingredients in small pieces. Blend the watermelon and tomatoe until you get a fine texture and add the rest of ingredients on top… there you are! Easy, isn’t it?

Are you in Montmeló watching the race? Any suggestions for a good restaurant? Here you have two:
Restaurant Major
Restaurant El Trabuc


Ingredients for 4 servings: Half watermelon, 8 ripe tomatoes, half a red pepper, half a green pepper, a can of lumpo roe, half a kilo of fresh mussels, 1 green onion, 5 fresh mint leaves, some extra virgin olive oil, some drops of jerez vinegar, salt.

  • Clean the mussels and cook them with one finger of water. Cover the pot and when they open, take the valves away and reserve.
  • Take seeds and peel from watermelon and tomatoes. Blend and reserve in a big bowl. Add olive oil, vinegar, the diced mint leaves, the salt and mix. Reserve in the fridge.
  • Wash and take the seeds of the peppers, cut in dices and reserve. Clean and cut the onion. Reserve.
  • Prepare the shots with the bowl gazpacho, pour the veggies on top and some mussels and the roe and serve.

The mussel (and the roe) surprise here. I thought it was going to be a strictly fruity gazpacho. Bet it’s delicious.

P.S. I’m planning to mention your return to blogging in one of my posts this week. Hope it brings some old friends back.
