The fish and the shellfish from the Mediterranean side of the country is quite exceptional and not farmed IF MARKED: “Capturado” = freshly caught and / or " Salvaje" ( wild) …
ONE OF THE BEST ROCK FISHES ( FRESH AND WILD) IS: URTA … IT IS A RED BANDED BREAM, LARGE AND PREPARED IN OVEN ONLY FROM " ROTA - CÁDIZ" … It is to die and go to heaven for – the next time you head over to Murcia.
Murcia is known for its “calasparra” rice !!! Always wonderful with shellfish.
Alot of the shellfish (Portuguese and corner of Cádiz) or Brittany or Marseille area depending on climate; are exceptional during the Christmas holiday season however, prices go up at this time.
Well have a lovely holiday and stay well.
My lawyer lives part time in Murcia … On coast … The village begins with the letter “A” … however, I cannot recall at moment.
I like the JUMILLA WINE REGION (KNOWN FOR THEIR REDS = TINTOS) VERY MUCH. These wines and Evoo have come up quite a bit in the last couple of years.
There is a restaurant there that specialises in providing its guests with EVOO TASTINGS … THEY ARE INCLUDED WITH THE MENU OF DEGUSTATION.
THE CHEF is middle aged … he is a old timer … I have to look up his name. He owns olive groves and the restaurant is in a grove !!! Maybe your parents know this venue …
Have a lovely weekend.
