Spanish food – starters

I have spent a fair amount of time in Spain and in general, I enjoy Spanish food, though I have also seen some pretty poor dishes. Here are a few examples of what I have sampled.

seafood soup

Seafood soup. A spicy, tangy sauce and plenty of crustaceans still in their shells. A good and quite filling starter.

fried fish

Deep fried fish in batter. Not bad though the dollop of mayonnaise, lettuce leaf and slice of lemon didn’t do much for the presentation.

squid in their own ink

Squid in their own ink. Not particularly tasty. I have some friends who have a 2 year old daughter who loves this dish.

mussels

Mussels as a starter. A nice size and a rich sauce. What more could a man ask for? A few more mussels perhaps?

large salad

A large salad. It was not salad season and so the salad was not the best Spain can provide.

salad with dressing

That’s more like it – too much dressing perhaps?
