Fans of fish treats are sure to visit coastal areas of Andalusia; the selection of fish restaurants here is just enormous. A typical local treat is fish baked in salt; this method of cooking was invented many years ago. The fish is placed on a thick layer of salt and then it is covered by remaining salt and hot coals; fish is prepared only on an open fire. In some restaurants, the fish in salt is cooked in a conventional oven and it turns out incredibly tasty and juicy.
As for delicious meats, it is certainly worth mentioning pata negra ham that is produced here. Literally pata negra can be translated as ‘black leg’ that fully explains the origin of the delicacy; it is made of black pig’s meat. In Andalusia jamon production is considered an art form; each year experienced manufacturers compete in slicing jamon and receive awards for the high quality of the ham. Travelers can taste delightful ham in a local restaurant; dried slices of jamon can be found in specialty stores too. When added to a dish, they become soft and gentle again and give a treat the unique flavor shade.
