You can easily find Spanish dishes with ingredients that are typical features of the Danish Easter menu. At the same time, you can add a southern twist to your classic Danish Easter dishes. You can also go all out and serve your Easter dinner in Spanish. Here are five dishes that are perfect for the Easter table.
Roast eggplants with honey
If you want to serve an Easter lunch with less meat, these crispy fried aubergines can easily be a delicious snack among the dishes. They can also be served before dinner with a glass of chilled cava or white wine.
The paper-thin aubergines are not as difficult to make as they look, but the simple dish is sure to delight your guests.

Long roast leg of lamb with potatoes and onions
No Easter without lamb, and although this long roast leg of lamb is often seen on Spanish Christmas tables, it plays a perfect starring role for a Danish Easter dinner.
The lamb is marinated in lemon, white wine, garlic and bay leaves and left in the oven for several hours with potatoes and onions. The result is a juicy and tender roast with the most delicious caramelised potatoes and onions. This Spanish version of leg of lamb is highly recommended.

Tomato-Fine Salad with Lemon
This Andalusian salad is perfect for the Easter lunch table, as an accompaniment to a meat dinner or as an element of a vegetarian dinner.
The salad is both colourful and tasty. The tomatoes get sweetness from the figs and tangy kick from the lemons. Onions and fresh basil give it extra spice and edge.

Lemon sorbet with cava
Here, Easter-yellow lemons are transformed into a light sorbet, blended with cava. In Spain, Sorbete de limón al cava, as it is called in Spanish, is typically served at gatherings and in many restaurants. The lemon sorbet with light bubbles works well as a light sweet dessert, for example after the Easter lamb roast, or as a palate cleanser between courses. In Spain, it is served both ways, both at private gatherings and in restaurants. If you want to make it quick, buy a good lemon sorbet and you’ll have a dessert in minutes.
