Boquerones

Post Posted: Fri Aug 30, 2013 2:23 pm

I did not get much response on this subject using another forum,

I like this tapas dish-----but to make my own what fish should I be looking out for at the Lota? I have never seen biquerão there and the anchovas are all too big. There was another small fish there which looked like it might do the trick but I cant remember the name of it now.

I'm with you Tombo and simply adore boquerones but the only place that I have found them here is in Makro. I don't know if you have one nearby or even a buying card so you maybe out of luck there.

Meanwhile, the bags are packed and I'm off to Andalucia for a week... Tapas all the way and those precious boquerones washed down with a nice fino or glass of cerveza or three! First stop Seville. Yeah!

Looking on google boquerones are white anchovies pickled in vinegar ,salt or sherry and are available as far afield as greece .Don't know if they come in jars or tins or fresh tho,it was a quick look.at least you may have some info to help find.

OK have pencilled-in Makro on my next trip to the barlovento part of the Algarve.
Have a good trip Jetlagged. Loads of tapas bars in Sevilla.

Wonder why they don't do something like that here?

Another of my disappointments about the Algarve is lousy bars without atmosphere, drafts, and plastic chairs and tables.

I did reply to a post on the other forum.

I already have the small tinned Anchovas (but immersed in óleo vegetal)
These are processed at our local fish factory Manná down in the port.
To do it right I have to get the raw fish, soak them in vinegar and then olive oil,
add garlic etc.
The spanish seem to do it right and over in Ayamonte they are excellent.

There is a Makro between Olhao and Faro. Look in the cold room. Normally with pates.

I see you're a back to basics kind of guy and good on you for that. Makro normally carry two versions; those already sitting in vinegar and others that are plate ready, i.e. soaked in vinegar and then layered with olive oil, parsley and garlic. Add a fork, crusty bread, iced beer an enjoy!

We have a favourite tapas bar in Seville that is worth making an overnight stop for on our way south. The Bodega Santa Cruz on Calle Rodrigo Caro is very reasonably priced with amazing atmosphere and their Tortillitas de Camarones (fritters of tiny shrimps) are to die for.
