La Gallega: Garlic, Evoo, Pimentón La Vera Smoked Cayenne Paprika, Potatoes and Fish stock.
La Sidra: Asturian Cider and fresh herbs baked in oven.
Con Vino Blanco: with white wine and herbs baked in oven.
Rellena: stuffed with crabmeat and / or shrimp.
Vizcaya: Tomato, saffron, garlic and white wine.
Pil Pil: Evoo, 1 chili pepper dried and sprinkled and garlic.
Ajoarriero: Onion, green pepper, garlic, tomato sauce, Evoo and Cayenne.
Kokotxas: this is the neck gulls of the Hake and / or the Cod fish, a delicacy on The Iberian Peninsula, and is made with white wine, garlic, cayenne, parsley and Evoo, sautéed.
Hope that this has been helpful.
Happy Father´s Day,
