What is the best olive oil for making salmorejo?
The key to making an exquisite salmorejo cordobés is to use good quality traditional ingredients. And one of the main products is olive oil, but always extra virgin olive oil. This is capable of providing the right nuances and texture.
In fact, the flavour of salmorejo is determined, to a large extent, by the variety of EVOO used, ranging from sweet and mild flavours to more bitter or spicy nuances. Then What variety of EVOO to use in salmorejo?
The picual variety will give your salmorejo very pronounced nuances thanks to its bitter and fruity flavour. It will be your favourite if you like strong flavours, although it can be too much of a protagonist in the dish.
On the other hand, the arbequina variety is milder and fruitier. This is one of the most commonly used for cold soups, as it provides a delicate flavour, but without covering up the rest of the ingredients.
The choice of EVOO for salmorejo depends on your tastes and preferences, choose Picual for a more bitter touch and Arbequina for a milder flavour. You decide, the important thing is that it is of high quality to give a distinctive touch to the dish.
