On a recent stay in an Alicante province hotel, we spied these oddities on the hotel buffet. I’m an adventurous eater, the people I was with……… not so much. So it fell to me to try the “Monsters on the Pie” offering. Imagine my surprise to find myself eating Spanish crayfish on top of a crab and fish pie that was absolutely delicious. So much so, I went back for another one.
The moral of the story? When in Spain, if you’re served something odd, strange and kinda scary looking yeah, crayfish do look a trifle other-planet-like), take a drink of sangria and try it. You may be pleasantly shocked at how scrumptious it is.
