The Spanish have a delicious recipe for pork rillettes that they make their own by adding paprika and fino sherry. Like the French rillettes, the pâté is sealed by a layer of rendered pork fat and adding paprika colours the fat red giving the dish its name: ‘manteca colorada’ (coloured lard). Manteca colorada is popular in southern Spain for breakfast; at Moro we serve it as a starter with toast and pickles.
