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
