Good food along the Camino de Santiago (French route)

I'm not looking for Michelin starred restaurants, just good food. Here's the rub: I don't eat pork (or really pretty much any red meat). I've heard that lots of Spanish places consider something vegetarian (and I'm not even looking for vegetarian, just red meat free) even if it has pork or beef broth with bits of pork in it. So, I'm a little nervous. I've been to Spain before - Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, and had no problems, but a few people have managed to get me worried. My Spanish is fairly rudimentary. So any tips? Anyone want to tell me how best to express myself when ordering to make sure I don't end up with a piece of fish cooked in lard and covered in bits of pork?

thanks very much in advance.
