The chimes of New Year’s Eve and surely some and there are those who still do not know what dishes to present to their family and friends for dinner. Even if you master the kitchen to perfection or, failing that, you don’t have much skill in the kitchen, there are dozens of easy and rich recipes with which to surprise your guests.

Below we detail some plates with which, without a doubt, you will triumph.

1. Canape of salmon, cream cheese and honey

The starters are usually the star dish of the party. Snacking is something very Spanish and, therefore, what better way to start New Year’s Eve dinner than with some simple salmon rolls that will surely please everyone.


  • 100 g of smoked salmon

  • 125 g cream cheese

  • 15 ml of liquid cream

  • 8 buns for canapés

  • 15 ml of honey

  • Salt to taste

  • Ground black pepper to taste


  1. Mix the cream cheese, cream and honey with a bowl. Season to taste.

  2. Spread the mixture on the rolls -if it is fresh bread, we toast them first-.

  3. Add the slice of salmon -cut each one in four to distribute-.

2. Prawns in oyster sauce

Seafood is always present in every house at Christmas time, but beyond the cooked prawn or grilled shrimp, we can give the dish a touch and go a little further to leave diners speechless.


  • 12 gambones

  • 1 clove garlic

  • Oyster sauce

  • Soy sauce

  • Water

  • Chives for garnish


  1. Peel the prawns. In a bowl collect the contents of the heads, squeezing them between your fingers. Sauté the tails until they are a deep orange color and reserve them.

  2. Chop the garlic and brown it a little. Add three tablespoons of the oyster sauce and the coral to the heads, stirring until just combined.

  3. Add two tablespoons of soy sauce and half a glass of water, stirring well.

  4. Let the sauce reduce and return the shrimp tails to the pan.

3. Sweet and sour salmon

When dinner is sure, the table is divided between the most carnivores and those who prefer fish. Beyond fillets in sauces or Wellington, lambs and suckling pigs, fish can be a tasty idea as a main dish.


  • 800g-1kg of salmon fillets

  • 4 tablespoons of honey

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger.


  1. In a bowl, prepare a sauce by mixing all the ingredients (except the salmon).

  2. Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray lined with aluminum foil and brush them liberally with the sauce.

  3. Wrap the tenderloins with the aluminum foil and bake for 15-20 minutes at 200 degrees.

4. Cava mousse

It’s time for dessert, nougats, polvorones and marzipan … but you have to leave room for the grapes. If you want something light and that helps to lower the binge, this is your recipe.


  • 4 g de gelatina neutra

  • 75 g of cream

  • 50 g of cava

  • 2 egg whites
