GARRUCHA’S star seafood product is in the spotlight this weekend as the municipality stages the second Festival of the Red Prawn.
Running tomorrow, Friday, to Sunday from midday to midnight, the gastro festival will feature conferences, roundtable discussions and cooking demonstrations with some of the best chefs in Andalucia, as well as food tastings and live music.
As you would expect there will be a variety of tasty tapas featuring red prawns and other locally caught fish and seafood as the main ingredients on offer. Think along the likes of prawn pate with pistachio cream, or prawn, pineapple and mango kebab with a mustard and honey sauce.
Speaking at the presentation of the festival, Garrucha Mayor Maria Lopez highlighted the “involvement and effort” of local bars and restaurants in the event and the collaboration between the local council and the hospitality sector on the festival organisation.
The Mayor also said they had “learnt lessons” from the first red prawn celebration last year, hence we have perfected some details and improved the festival.”
All the festival action will take place in a giant 2,500sqm marquee next to Garrucha port.
