Spanish food – main courses

Here are a few of the meals I’ve enjoyed in Spain over the years.

Spanish mussels

A very generous portion of very tasty mussels.

Spanish chicken breast

Deep fried chicken breast with some mild chillies. Doesn’t the plate seem strangely bare?

Spanish risotto

Risotto, made with anything the cook could find. Heavy and not particularly tasty.

Spanish menu

It is not difficult to find an inexpensive meal in Spain. Here you can see a three course meal, with bread, wine or water, for 8 euros.

Spanish seafood

The Spanish are big on seafood. Ideally cooked fresh rather than heated up a hundred times…

Spanish food

Marks out of ten for presentation? Well, it was filling…

Spanish main course

Roast beef and chips, what more could an Englishman ask for? Well, to have less gristly piece of meat… The chilli and pepper sauce was good though.

Not sure

Looking more like pork scratchings than something edible… The chips weren’t bad.

Spanish Paella

Apologies for the yellow tinge. Here is a mountain of paella – for one person!

Sausage and beans

Slightly more modest. Sausage and beans.


Pork chop

Pork chop in a rich, though not very nice, sauce.

Weird food

Great colours! Deep fried banana, or perhaps plantain, with a mound of white rice, tomato sauce and all topped by a fried egg.

Cured hams

From a Spanish supermarket, here you can see cured hams.
