What is Fideos? Fideos is pasta, eaten regularly throughout the Mediterranean and very popular in Spain, particularly Andalucia. The short thin noodles are always cooked in a sauce and can be used in a variety of Spanish dishes including meat, fish and many types of soup. For this recipe we have used boneless pork accompanied by garlic, tomatoes with the addition of smoked paprika for that lovely earthy flavour. Serve in bowls for a warming winter lunch or on small plates with bread for tapas.
