Here’s a great example of a well-done chirigota - original satirical songs, performed by groups dressed up in various creative outfits.
Pre-Carnival, Rota, Spain
Typical Tapas: Salpicon de Mariscos
This is another tapa bar staple, something you’ll very likely find in every single tapa bar in Spain, or at least in Andalucia.
It’s a very simple dish. The only ingredients are diced tomatoes, green Spanish pepper, onions, olive oil, vinegar, and chopped up fresh seafood. The seafood varies from bar to bar, and day to day, depending on what’s available fresh. The one I had today from the chiringuito had octopus, shrimp, mussels, and cuttlefish. Other common seafood additions are crabmeat, and fish eggs.
This is easily one of my favorites, as it is very representative of Spanish cuisine in its simplicity and use of the freshest ingredients.
