Story Behind this Recipe
I love Spanish cuisine, so I wanted to make something to go with wine. This is the ultimate version with anchovies that I arrived at after many tries. This is a delicious drinking snack.
The key to the deliciousness is the anchovies. The garlic really changes the flavor of the dish. Don't worry if you don't have any on hand, though. You can just go for a light Galicia dish instead. I guess if you go the extra mile and add the anchovies, it'll taste like a professional chef made it!
