Spanish tapas: Tortillitas de camarones

shrimp, fritters, tapas, food, Spain, Andalusia

These shrimp fritters (forget the fact that it’s called ‘tortillita‘, there’s no egg involved) are the most well-know tapa from the Cádiz area, in Southwestern Spain. You can get them in Seville too, but most of the times they’re quite different and though tasty just not the same as the proper ones. A few Sevillian bars, whose owners are from Sanlúcar de Barrameda, do them properly!

The one in the picture is from Casa Balbino, in Sanlúcar. Together with a glass of cold Manzanilla is definitely something going on a trip for!

[In my Spanish blogs: in annalibera a great tiny place for coffee in Santiago de Compostela, Café Venecia, and in panepanna a look at September's first cooking workshop, Pasta 102]
