The Hairy Bikers' Mediterranean Adventure
Black pudding, morcilla or boudin noir – we love it all. This is good
served on toasted bread as part of a tapas feast or it makes a great
starter or tasty brunch. Spanish black pudding is called morcilla but
it’s fine to use regular British black pudding and we find that it’s easier
to slice than morcilla. We’ve included some of the spices you get in
morcilla in this recipe to give that real Moorish flavour.
You Will Need
Heat half the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and fry it gently for about 10 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the garlic, oregano and all the spices and cook for a couple more minutes, then season with salt and pepper.
Add 100ml of water and leave everything to simmer for a couple of minutes.
In a separate frying pan, heat the remaining olive oil. Add the black pudding and fry it briskly on all sides until crisp. Then gently toss the black pudding with the onion mixture and the tomatoes.
Toast the bread, pile the black pudding mixture on top and serve garnished with chopped parsley.
