Murcia Cuisine

The Region of Murcia serves authentic Mediterranean cooking: cereals, vegetables and olive oil are the base of this cuisine, which finds its source of inspiration in the market garden - natural, authentic, tasty and with a character all of its own. The roasts, salted fish, fish and shellfish from the Mar Menor are equally appreciated. However, the Region of Murcia is also well-known for its rice, sausages, preserved foods, nuts, aromatic plants, fruit and confectionery.

Arroz al caldero

Cauldron-cooked Rice

A dish strongly associated with the fishermen of the dazzling Mar Menor bay, arroz al caldero comes from humble roots. Dating back to the nineteenth century, the recipe is comprised of whatever fish was left over from the day’s catch that was not sold at market. Cooked in a cauldron along with peppers, garlic, olive oil and tomatoes, the end result is a sensational, sticky and malleable rice, sometimes with hunks of fish, full of flavor from the sea.
