My favorite thing about traveling, is by far all the amazing food I get to have. In Andalucia, where my family has lived for over 18 years, we like to frequent Chiringuitos - little restaurants on the beach serving traditional tapas, wine and beers. This is what we had for lunch on a Sunday beach-club day with the whole gang.
- A plate full of mixed fried seafood (YUUUM). We had fried calamari, anchovies, fish and baby shrimps.. amazing with a drizzle of lemon juice and dipped in mayo.
- A colorful tuna salad - my family doesn't have a main meal without a salad - a tradition that has been instilled in me since I can remember. The dressing is usually just a balsamic or red wine vinegar, lots and lots of extra virgin olive oil (dirt cheap over here) and some salt and pepper.
- Gambas al pil-pil. Okay, this is one of my favorite things to eat and make (I shall share a recipe soon) - its basically prawns cooked to perfection in lots of oil and spices, always served with a side of bread.. no oil or spices remain in the dish, I promise. My kinda finger-licking amazingness.
