Angulas #ManicMonday

This is probably one of my favorite things to eat EVER. Those who are not familiar probably are thinking, Ew, they look like worms! These, my friends, are Angulas or Baby Eel, a Spanish dish from the Basque region that was originally known as a fisherman's dish.

The real Angulas can cost about 30 euros up for a small can, but the demand has been so high that they have started to make imitation Angulas, called "Gulas" and this is what they sell here in the Philippines (and even in supermarkets in Spain where I got all of mine) At this point, It does not matter to me anymore if I am eating Angulas or Gulas (actually it does but the former is expensive and unavailable here!)

I have this sometimes when I am too lazy to cook. All you need with it is some crusty bread and chili and garlic to cook it with. It takes all of 5 minutes to open the can or bottle, put in a pan, brown the garlic and infuse the chili. A can you can buy at Terry's is good for two as a starter or with something else or as a full meal for one.

If you are still unsure of how to eat this or cook it, head over to Terry's or to Cirkulo, where the picture was taken and try it there first. Promise, you'll love it!
