Galicians (Gallegos in Spanish) are proud of their cuisine, and some of the most popular dishes in Spain are from Galicia, like the emapanada. We've posted a new recipe for the tuna "pie" or "turnover," which in Spanish is called an empanada. Empanadas can be filled with a variety of ingredients - meat, fish, shellfish, or fruit. This recipe has a filling made of bonito (tuna), mixed with boiled egg, onion, red pepper and tomato sauce, which is very traditional. Prepare the crust and bake in the oven until it is flaky and golden brown. Preparing it brings back memories of Galicia when we walked the Camino de Santiago, and would stop for a rest, and enjoy a glass of wine and a piece of freshly-baked empanada.
