Today I share another true classical Dominican traditional gastronomy recipe. The sardine locrio, sardine rice or “pica pica” rice or locrio, is an important part of the contemporary history Of the Dominican Republic. The “pica pica” (it used to be a brand name) in its “hot” variety (the red can) was widely consumed in the beginning mainly in the low income social sectors but, as is common in the Dominican Republic, where rich and poor eat the same, ended up becoming a favorite dish in the nation’s popular gastronomy. A flavorful, cheap and highly nutritious dish…maybe the perfect dish? I can remember from when I was very young the small green cans (in my house we were never fans of the spicy one) and red cans that Mom sometimes also bought (maybe by mistake, who knows!) I can also remember the flavorful sardine locrio with the “mandatory” red beans.
