Additional Information

Serve with baguette and dip in sauce. Remember this is supposed to be spicy so do not be too reserved with the chilli. Chilli flakes can be substitute the real chilli or even added for an extra kick. White wine is not generally used in this dish in Spain so you can omit that. I tend to be more inclined to use it. It brings something special to the dish.
