In the northern Basque provinces, there is cod vizcaina or cod pil-pil; angulas,
the tasty baby eels from Aguinaga; bream and squid. Asturias has its bean soup,
fabada, cheeses and the best cider in Spain, and in Galicia there are shellfish,
especially good in casseroles, and a number of regional seafood dishes such
as hake à la Gallega.
