Salmorejo with Tuna

A recipe this simple depends on the quality of the ingredients. This should be made only in that time of the year when tomatoes are at their best. Use the highest quality Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Sherry Vinegar.



Time: N/A
  • Cut an“x” into the blossom end of the tomatoes and plunge them, a few at a time into a saucepan of boiling water.
  • Lift them out after a minute and refresh under cold running water.
  • Slip the skins. Core and coarsely chop the tomatoes.
  • Put the garlic and the tomatoes in the blender and puree on high until liquefied.
  • Tear the bread into a bowl. Soak the bread in water and squeeze it dry.
  • Add the bread and the vinegar to the tomatoes in the blender. Run the blender again. Loosen the puree with water as needed.
  • Add the olive oil to the blender in a thin stream until it is incorporated.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until well chilled.
  • Before serving, taste again for salt, pepper and vinegar.
  • Garnish each serving with flaked tuna and ½ chopped egg.
  • Add another drizzle of the extra virgin olive oil for flavor.
  • Place the eggs in an appropriately sized saucepan for the quantity that you are making. Cover with cold water.
  • Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Remove the pan from the heat when the water comes to a boil. Cover.
  • Let the eggs rest for 15 minutes and then refresh them in a cold water bath.
