Among the rich Spanish and Andalusian gastronomy, doubtlessly, salmorejo stands out. Although it is originally from Cordoba, Seville has nothing to envy, as in most Sevillian restaurants you can try this culinary delight made with bread, tomato, olive oil and garlic.
However, don’t let yourself be fooled by the simplicity of its ingredients with the complexity and practice required to make a good salmorejo. For example, it is important that the garlic is not too spicy, that a quality olive oil is used and that it is left to cool before serving.
Another characteristic of this dish is that it can go with whatever we like the most, as there are a multitude of ingredients and foods that match perfectly: from diced ham, croutons and boiled egg to fried fish (or pescaíto frito as Spanish like to call it). Appetising either for lunch or for dinner, so in case you are a night person, don’t miss after a delicious salmorejo dinner our Night Tour Seville.
Here is a list for those who come from abroad and do not want to miss this delicacy, as well as for those who, living here, want to keep discovering it. Don’t forget the multitude of Guided Tours in Seville we offer to live the city to the fullest.
