Pan Con Tamate
  1. Slit the tomatoes horizontally into two halves. Using a grater, grate the tomatoes in a large bowl. Make sure you only grate the flesh of the tomatoes and not the skin. Discard the skin of the tomatoes. Season the grated flesh of the favorites with kosher salt.
  2. Now, preheat the broiler to a high temperature. Place a rack below the broiler. On this rack, set the tray and place bread in it or place the bread directly on the rack. Broil the bread until it gets crispy and begins to char on the edges. This may take 2-3 minutes.
  3. After it is done, remove the bread and rub split garlic cloves over it. Spread the tomato mixture over the bread and drizzle extra virgin olive oil over it. Season the bread with flaky sea salt. 
  4. Serve immediately.

Do not keep the bread after it is made. Serve it as soon as possible as the crispiness might vanish and the bread might get soggy.
