Eggplant with salmorejo is a dish that is proposed very often in tapas restaurants during summer. Eggplant is fried and served with a side dish of salmorejo. The latter is a sort of gazpacho, made with bread and tomatoes. It is thicker than the Andalusian gazpacho. Normally eggplant is dipped in the salmorejo or we spread some of it with a spoon. It tastes very good! I remember that the first summer I returned to Madrid since I left it and moved to Grenoble, I went out with some friends to try a new tapas restaurant. You know those moments when you look at the menu and you know instantaneously what you are going to order? Or rather said… what you “need” to order. That is what happened to me that day with this tapas of eggplant with salmorejo. It was really worth it, it was excellent.
