Many restaurants in Ibiza offers the delicious lobster in different style, but a typical dish from the Balearic Island is the most simple one, the lobster stew known as ‘La Caldereta de Langosta’.
Mediterranean food is simple and inexpensive in its simplicity. Fresh ingredients are used to create the most delicious dishes. This is the case of the traditional lobster stew. The ingredients to prepare this dish are few – a sofrito made with a mixture of tomatoes, green peppers, onions, garlic and parsley in which are added pieces of tasty lobster. The whole dish is then served with thin slices of crusty bread.
Take note that the Caldereta de Langosta can only be enjoyed during the spring and summer months as the local lobsters are a protected species and their fishing is prohibited at other times of the year.
