When hosting the Spain regional forum for another recipe site, I came to really love and appreciate Spanish cuisine. All the fresh peppers, vegetables, and cheeses, and the wonderful use of Mediterranean spices and the abundance of seafood and small ranch-raised beef and pork really appealed to my taste buds. And this is one of my favorite Spanish recipes. It's from the Basque region of Spain.
