The gastronomy in Garrucha gives special importance to the fresh fish of its coasts and to the red prawn, a delicacy of the Mediterranean that is only present in this area of Almeria.
Garrucha’s cuisine is simple, mainly based on products from the sea and the lands of the municipality. Amongst the fish that one can try out are the following: porgy, sea bream, sole, grouper...They can be prepared on the grill with olive oil and parsley or fried. Amongst other dishes that you could like for example is the fish and seafood casserole or the famous seafood stew, very typical in Almeria, made with mackerel or monkfish with almonds, garlic and bread.
Other typical dishes that we can find in Garrucha and that is shared with Almeria are the ‘Migas’ (made with flour and bread and that can be accompanied with peppers and sardines, fresh anchovies or meat fat), rice with rabbit, the casserole of peppers and ribs or the snails amongst other dishes.
