Pan Con Tomate with Jamón Serrano

What Is Pan Con Tomate?

Pan con Tomate also known as, Pa amb tomàquet, is a traditional Spanish & Catalan dish. I’ll never forget the first time I had this – it’s simple, yet so elegant and special. It highlights using high quality, fresh ingredients in a simple way. Mostly served Tapas style, with other Spanish side dishes.

Traditionally, you will take the tomatoes, slice and rub directly on the bread. Top with a drizzle of high quality olive oil and serve.

What is Jamón Serrano?

Jamón is a dry-cured ham produced in Spain. Like Pan Con Tomate, it is also traditionally served Tapas style, either on bread, or on a plate by itself.

Ingredients you Need

  • sourdough toasted bread or baguette (you can alternatively use ciabatta or other baguette of your choice)
  • roma or beefsteak tomatoes, any ripe tomatoes will do, summer tomatoes are best!
  • garlic cloves
  • Jamón Serrano
  • Good quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • flaky sea salt
  • pepper
  • regular kosher salt

*optional to pair with some sliced manchego cheese here!

Pan Con Tomate with Jamón Serrano

Instructions to make this recipe

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Slice your baguette on the bias and place in a baking sheet with olive oil to toast, about 5-7 minutes until browned and toasted throughout.

In the meantime, take your tomatoes and cut them in half horizontally. Rub the tomatoes to get the tomato pulp on a box grater and grate until a tomato mixture in formed. Toss in a bowl. Season and sprinkle with salt and pepper, as well as a heaping amount of extra virgin olive oil. Set aside.

When your bread is out of the oven, take a raw garlic clove and rub it against the toast (this really helps get out the garlic flavor!) Top with your tomato mixture, your Jamón Serrano (desired amount per slice of bread). Season with flakey salt, pepper and finish with olive oil. Serve immediately and enjoy!
