I'm back from my trip to Andalucia, Spain, the Malaga region as usual. Each time I'm completely overwhelmed by the food presented in the central food market. Look and drool;
My souvenirs I brought back. Chorizo from bellota and Iberico ham of course. I bought all of that at El Corte Ingles, not the market.
Beautiful architectural element in Malaga's harbor.
There's garlic and garlic. If it's not pink like this, I don't want it.
Even the smallest fishes are used, certainly the boquerones (fresh anchovies)
Recognize the white small stuff? That's baby anchovies ready to be used in a freitura Malaguena.
Can you believe such quality salmon, tuna and sword fish?
Those are called "rape" in Spanish or monkfish for the rest of us.
Elegant display of fishes. What kind? I didn't ask.
Ever seen chorizo in pork fat?
Roasted almonds from Malaga.
Both these were in season.
Nuts from Malaga... yep, that's me.
Time for a rest -a good half an hour's drive away- in posh Marbella's old town, feet up. Just in case you wondered; Puerto Banus is 6 kilometer outside Marbella.
Unusual long shadows in Marbella.
