Source: Bella - A recipe from Mallorca. My cousin and her family moved there from Barcelona and stayed for a couple of years due to her husband's work, and they sent me this recipe several years ago. I found it in a drawer ... I can't imagine why I put it there! So I made it and it's simply DELICIOUS! You must promise me you'll try it too
