A very interesting project taking recipes out of Alfred Hitchcock filmography.
Don’t worry. They are not worms. Gulas are just Surimi, the same fish paste used in Crab Sticks. Different shape.
Gulas try to imitate Angulas (young Eels). Due to decreased supply from overfishing, changes in the ocean habitat and a big demand in Spain and Japan, Angulas price is constantly going up (in Christmas around €2000/kilo).
Gulas became very popular a few years ago and can be found everywhere in Spain. “A la Bilbaina” (fried in olive oil with garlic and chilli) or served with scrambled eggs are the most common ones.
*If you have the chance to try the real ones, Angulas, don’t miss it. It is a real delicacy.
