BOQUERONES EN VINAGRE #WIAT




Woke up a little on the homesickly side, and couldn't stop going through some of my photos from home. So this will be a delayed #WhatIAteToday feature, but I can't help but share it.

Boquerones are a tapas dish from the south of Spain.. Boquerones are fresh anchovies, and they are served cold, garnished with garlic, extra virgin olive oil, herbs and vinegar. I can probably eat an entire bucket of this stuff, it's so good..

The processing of the anchovies goes as follows: fresh anchovies are de-scaled and de-boned, then soaked in a salt and water bath for a few hours, before being soaked in white vinegar for a few more hours. The vinegar bleaches the meat, turning the Boquerones white. Best served on the beach, with a pint of ice cold beer!

This photo was taken at my favorite Chiringuito Las Flores in Marbella, Spain.

Uhhhhhhhhh my cravings are killing me now!
