Spanish Gastronomy: Pescaíto Frito

23 Dec

Pescaíto Frito (fried fish) is a traditional fish dish originated during the 16th century in Spain and Portugal.The deep-frying of the fish in vegetable oil makes it crisp and light even when eaten cold, and it is a favourite dish of south spaniards.

There is a general belief that pescaito frito was possibly an inspiration for the English fish and chips.

Pescaito frito is usually eaten at chiringuitos, little restaurants at the beach, and a very popular pescaito frito chiringuito is Romerijo, at El Puerto de Santa Maria.
