Excalibur canapes



Receta en español aquí

Ingredients

A bag of Bocabits (Spanish wheat snacks)
1 Greek yogurt without sugar
2 pickled green chillies (Guindillas) without seeds
Cheese in slices (havarti) 
Chive
Fish roes, black

Toothpicks (instead of swords)


Directions

Remove the seeds from the pickled green chillies, chop finely the chillies and blend with the Greek yoghurt. Set aside.
Put together 3 or 4 slices of cheese and cut squares, big enough to place the bocabit and the toothpick.

Assemble all canapes but without the filling. 


Fill the canapes with the yoghurt and chilli sauce just before serving, so the bocabits are crunchy. Garnish with chive and fish roes. And enjoy!
