Seafood medley in white wine and tomato - Zarzuela is a type of Spanish musical theatre and the dish of the same name is so-called because of the number of different components. This zarzuelita is a simplified form ideal as a tapa. If you are making a larger quantity, you can add fish, clams and scallops and perhaps a little fish stock. Some recipes even include ham, pork or chorizo.
