An Andalusian fritura / Toya Legido – ICEX

Who doesn’t love digging into a delicious plate of fried food?

Whether it’s a simple dish like french fries, or something more “exotic” like a wonderful and typical Andalusian fritura of small, fresh sardines; hot, crisp and expertly fried food is always a guilty pleasure… but does it have to be?

The answer, according to Spanish journalist Alfonso Díaz, is a rotund NO!

Díaz is the author of the book Las 5W de la fritura saludable (The 5W’s of Healthy Frying), which explains the keys to making healthy, fried food. The secret? Spanish extra virgin olive oil, used under certain conditions with regard to temperature and storage.
