WHAT CAN WE EAT AT COAÑA?
The dishes we can taste in Coaña are very varied, as it is near the sea and the mountains. Typical of the seaside are fishes like sea breams, hakes, sea bass,... and shellfish from the rough Cantabrian Sea. From inland, we can taste meats like Asturian beef, game, village chicken or “pitu de calleya” (in Asturian dialect).
These products can combine perfectly well so we will be able to taste them together in a single dish: fabas con almejas (beans with clams), empanada de berberechos (cockle pie), fabas con jabalí (beans with wild boar), merluza con patatinas (hake with small potatoes)........
When dessert time comes, creamed rice, venera (typical cake from Navia made of almonds, sugar and eggs), frixuelos (finely made pancakes), requesón (sweetened fresh cheese served with honey) or the typical Abredo cheese with apple preserve will close with a perfect finale an exceptional meal in Coaña.
Abredo cheese, very well-known in western Asturias, is homemade in the dairy located in the village of Abredo. It is elaborated with 100% cow milk and it has already won several prizes.
