“Sobar” with salt, lime and basil

Imagine this… You have just finished an incredible Spanish feast, stand up with a plump satisfaction to complete the monetary exchange.

After reading all about the fine eateries at the pinnacle of the culinary pyramid around Spain, a stop on the Iberian peninsula was a must for my Europe travels.
