Prawns, mussels, sea dates and lobsters are part of the wide variety of seafood on this land. Although special mention deserve the succulent prawns of Vinarós, holders of a great reputation internationally. Also mention the sardines, gilthead, sole and octopus, which you can taste alone or in tasty dishes such as suquet de peix and zarzuelas.
On the other hand, with the meat of rabbit, chicken and pork inside the area, superb stews and sausages are made, as well as the popular tombets. In addition, and how could it be otherwise, in Oropesa del Mar also predominates rice in all its varieties: paella, black rice, broth rice, brown rice, baked rice and arrosejat, a traditional stew of fishermen of easy preparation and delicious flavor. We cannot forget either the well-known fideuá, or the caragolada, a wonderful delicacy made with stewed and marinated snails together with a spicy sauce or aioli.
Finally, sweet potato, cottage cheese, walnuts or angel hair give their characteristic flavor to our rich traditional desserts, of which we recommend you to try Oropesina.
