The south coast of Spain is famed for its bounty of fresh veg and seafood. The most iconic delicacy of the region is probably traditional paella. It's a spicy, Moorish-influenced rice dish that often includes mussels and squid when served in seaside towns like Puerto de la Duquesa. Soups like ajoblanco and gazpachuelo – infused with wild garlic, with peeled shrimps and legumes added, and eaten either hot or cold – are also common additions to the menu.
