Pa amb oli recipe
The “pa amb oli” is one of the most common dinners among Mallorcans. When you stay with friends for lunch or dinner, to avoid complicating things too much, we buy good bread, tomatoes, oil, some sausages and some pickled products such as fonollmarí, capers or some Mallorcan olives. Although it is an easy dish to prepare, we are going to explain step by step how to make a pamboli: First step; main ingredient, the bread. The first step is to choose a good bread, with a crunchy crust and a dense and juicy crumb. If we want, we can toast the bread (optional). Second step, a good olive oil and good tomatoes. The second step is to choose a good oil and good tomatoes. In Sabor de Mallorca we can find different types of oils to elaborate our pamboli. If you like soft oil it is Xanthurus oil and if you like something more intense it is Oli de Muntanya. The ideal tomatoes for this dish, according to Mallorcan tradition, are the Ramellet tomatoes, as they are easy to rub on bread, but if not, we can use normal grated tomatoes, adding a little salt and oil, so that they are easy to spread. We will spread the tomato and then we will sprinkle the olive oil on the bread. Third step; Sausages. The third step is to decide on the sausages. We can use any kind of sausage we like like like ham, serrano, camaiot, different types of cheese but especially, the sobrassada (you can find it in Sabor de Mallorca). It is advisable to take them out of the fridge before eating them, in order to taste their flavour. Last step; The extras of the dish. Olives, gherkins, fonoll marí or capers. To conclude, we must accompany our pamboli with some pickled product or similar. For example, some braided or whole Sóller olives D.O., or a Llubinera caper or Fonoll marí Llubinera (sea fennel) that you can find in the Sabor de Mallorca online shop. We hope that you have been served this simple Mallorcan pamboli recipe and that you will surprise your family and friends.
