Cigalas Are highly appreciated in the culinary world, they are some of the most popular Seafood, along with langoustines and shrimp.
In spite of being chosen by many as appetizers, they work magically in other preparations such as Rice pots or stews. They are part of a gastronomic tradition that never fails at a table, a dish that undoubtedly will delight everyone.
In Scotland and Spain they are very well known, in fact the best cigalas come from the Galician coasts and Cantabrian Sea and in these countries they usually steal the main role in festivities such as Christmas or in the most prestigious restaurant’s menus.
But the country that takes this passion for cigalas one step higher is Ireland. For them “Dublin Bay Prawn”, as they call it, is considered an “Irish caviar” and its capture is the second most valuable of the island, they even have their own festival!
In March, Irish people and connoisseurs get together in the idyllic fishing town of Howth, Ireland to experience the “Dublin Bay Prawn Festival”, a culinary experience for the most discerning foodies. You will find delicious food, artisan beer, wine tastings, live cooking shows and other attractions for the whole family while you experience the delicious flavor and texture of Cigalas.
