I love Spain.
I love it's people, their language and their food.
Simply prepared, always using the freshest local ingredients.
On that note, when I come back home I will share a mouth watering Spanish chicken dish with you.
Last night I ate at a wonderful Spanish restaurant here in NYC. It's called Alcala. It's been around for a while: longevity for a restaurant in NYC means you are on to something. ;-)
I know not everyone enjoys these, but fresh grilled sardines are just hard to beat!!
Simply grilled with some fresh herbs, salt, pepper and then drizzled with Spanish olive oil. Mixed greens finished off the dish.
And just in case your curious.....
The crispy heads were eaten last, as they are delicious ;-)
Try some if you ever get the chance!
