congrio al ajo arriero

/kohn-GREE-oh ahl AH-hoh ahr-ee-EH-roh/

"Conger eel in the style of the muleteer." Conger eel cooked with large amounts of garlic. This dish is thought to have originated from the muleteers' desire to cover up the taste of conger eel which was going off as they transported them inland, despite the salt and ice in which they weer packed.
