Hey, Mr Zamburiña man…

by Jax on July 14, 2014

Last time I was in A Coruña (to give it its proper Galician name) I ate something called ‘zamburiñas’ without knowing – apart from them being some sort of seafood thing – what they were…whatever they were I thought they were delicious.

In other parts of Spain, I have come across them in tins – obviously not the same experience. Last night I ate them again, at the ‘Tapa Negra’ but this time instead of being enveloped in an empanada (pastry) they were ‘a la plancha’ – done on the grill with parsley and garlic (and a bit of iberico ham – I know, I know, I don’t really eat meat…but when it melts in your mouth like this, it’s hardly meaty). And you could see exactly what they are – a baby scallop, but you can’t see just how sweet they tasted – they tasted as exquisite as they look. I’m not sure if this was the best dish I’ve ever eaten, but if it wasn’t it was pretty damn close. And no. I didn’t share with anyone. I ate every last morsel myself. In no time at all. No me importa. That’s Spanish for ‘I don’t care’.

I wrote previously about being a glutton in La Coruña, so I’ll try not to go on about it too much, but I’m very happy to be back for more. And more, hopefully.
