Serve three pieces of fried cheese per person with the compote in a bowl on the side so that people can serve themselves.

This recipe combines sweet compote with strong Cabrales cheese, a favorite because of its excellent flavor, but here served in an unusual fried version. Preparation by: Ángel León
