Galicia (northwestern Spain) has 35% of the total Spanish coastline. It is a region with an abundance and wide diversity of marine species and has a deeply-rooted seafaring tradition. Its location, between the 42nd and 44th parallels, is, strangely enough, on the same latitude as the coasts of Japan.
Galicia owes the exceptional wealth of its seas to:
- its geographical situation, in the shape of a corner that juts into the sea
- the great ocean currents that converge here
- the jagged, capricious nature of its coastline
Its annual capacity for producing life is similar to that of the equatorial jungles, making it one of the richest marine environments in the world.
As far as sea vegetables are concerned, this area has the best resources in southern Europe, with luxuriant underwater gardens and many different shapes and colours.

We soak it for at least an hour, preferably overnight, to get it nice and tender. Eat it with a simple dressing of olive oil & vinegar, smother it in mayonnaise, or drown it in tomato sauce, it's always a nurturing and fulfilling meal.
