Spanish strawberries are extremely versatile and can be enjoyed on their own or in any number of tasty recipes – both savory and sweet. Also, did you know that Spanish strawberries have very few calories and very little fat, no cholesterol and are an excellent source of vitamin C, Folic acid and fiber?

Here are a few both simple and more complex ideas from Foods from Spain on ways to prepare this delicious and healthy fruit and celebrate the arrival of Spanish strawberry season:

Strawberry and tomato gazpacho (Gazpacho de fresas y tomate)

Marinated sardines with strawberry and cheese sauces (Sardinas en escabeche de fresón y queso) from chef Pepe Rodríguez Rey’s (El Bohío)

And French toast soaked in liquid cherimoya with cooked wild strawberries and mint (Torrija empapada en un licuado de chirimoya con estofado de fresitas del bosque y menta) from chef Dani García (Calíma)

Enjoy!
