So what is "alambre" with regard to Mexican cuisine?

BeaN | Apr 5, 2007 06:15 PM

During our recent trip to the Yucatan peninsula (not the state), we ordered "alambre" dishes more than once. My understanding of the term is "wire," to be rendered as a skewer where food is involved.

What we were served was really good, but it did not come off of a skewer. I would have described it as a skillet fry.

Please illuminate me.
