A tapa, the miniature cuisine from Spain, is a finger food eaten between the meals. In Spanish, tapa means “cover or appetizer”. The Real Academia Española de la Lengua defines a tapa as “any portion of solid food able to accompany a drink”. You can choose from four types of tapas: cold, fried, sauce based and warm. The fried tapas, such as boquerones, calamaries, croquets, fritters, sausages and torreznos, are the most popular.
The tapas served with salads can even replace a complete lunch. Tapas are made from both animal-based and agricultural products: anchovies, beef, cheeses, cocktail onions, dry nuts, meat, mackerel, sardines, squid, tuna, and vegetables. However, no tapa will be complete without olives. read full article
