Ingredients

For a preparation intended for four people, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1 kg of white fish (hake, monkfish, cod, etc.)
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Mayonnaise to taste
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Optional: clams, shrimps and toast

Preparation

The gazpachuelo preparation method consists of the following steps:

  1. The first thing to do is to clean the fish, remove the skin and bones, and cut it into small pieces to set aside.
  2. Then, we peel the potatoes and cut them into medium pieces to reserve them.
  3. Peel the garlic and chop finely to keep.
  4. Heat a little olive oil in a large saucepan and start sautéing the garlic over medium-low heat, preventing it from burning.
  5. Add the potatoes and fish, add salt to taste, and then cover the ingredients with water. Cook over medium-high heat for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender or soft.
  6. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a bit of salt and add a few tablespoons of mayonnaise. Mix these three ingredients well until a homogeneous cream is obtained.
  7. When the potatoes and fish are cooked, lower the heat to the minimum and slowly add the previously prepared mixture, stirring constantly so that the creamy texture does not stick or cut.
  8. If we want to add clams or shrimps, we can add them now and wait for them to open and cook for a few more minutes.
  9. After the previous step, we can serve the gazpachuelo very hot, with toast or to taste.

Some garnishes that can be served with gazpachuelo are goat cheese, dark chocolate, assorted fruits, charcuterie, avocado and salmon salad, fried fish, breaded or stuffed eggplant, poached egg with tuna and ham, pasta salad, seafood salad, melon with ham or paella.

A light refreshing drink such as water with lemon, white wine, beer, orange juice, or green tea is recommended to counteract the intense and fatty taste of the gazpachuelo. Regarding dessert, a sweet and creamy option such as egg flan, custard, rice pudding, Catalan cream, cheesecake or vanilla or chocolate ice cream can be chosen to favor the balance of the palate after the soup.
