Gastronomy in the province of Almeria
Almeria’s gastronomy is influenced by the cuisine from Murcia as well as by the rich variety of the Alpujarras in Granada, in which its dishes offer abundant fish as it’s a coastal city and with a special flavour in the use of pepper, influenced from Murcia.
Almeria has cultivations that are part of dishes such as the stews, the pot of green broad beans or the red garlics, a typical dish from the Almanzora Caves. More typical dishes that we’ll find in the Almeria cuisine are:
- Moorish soup
- Paprika broth
- 'Brave’ potatoes (bravas)
- Partridges with 'gurullos', a type of pasta elaborated with hard wheat, water and saffron.
- Broth of Eggs
Amongst the sea products typical of Almeria are the monkfish, the mackerel, the red mullet, the octopus and the squid, as well as the cuttlefish and the red prawn. Commonly grilled, although they can also be eaten in stews.
