Dressed Berberechos

Total Time: 6 minutes, 22 seconds. Serves one.



1. Drain a tin of cockles (berberechos) into a small bowl, brine only.

2. Into that bowl of brine, add a squeeze of lemon juice, olive oil, sherry vinegar, and sweet smoked paprika. Whisk until satisfied all of the flavors are intermingling appropriately.

3. Introduce the cockles themselves to this congregation, letting all marinate together for a bit so they really get to know each other.

4. Serve alongside the necessary crusty bread.
