This humble Spanish dish is a genius (and addictive) way to eat bread. Try it with our recipe for Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and a chilled bottle of Albarino!
Serves 4 – 6
1 baguette, cut in half lengthwise
1/2 cup fruit extra virgin olive oil such as We Olive Arbequina EVOO
3 medium, ripe tomatoes, cut in half
3 cloves garlic, peeled
Heat a grill or a broiler. Brush the cut sides of the baguette with EVOO. Place the baguette halves on the grill, cut side down and toast until golden, 2 -3 minutes. If you’re using a broiler, place the baguette halves cut side up on a sheet pan and toast until golden, about 2 -3 minutes.
Remove the baguette from the oven and rub the cut sides of the bread first with the garlic cloves, then with the tomato halves. Sprinkle with kosher salt and cut the baguette into slices. Serve with more EVOO!
