Fuet de Barcelona
Fuet is a Spanish pork sausage, dry cured, like salami. It is a smaller version of salchichón which is a Spanish equivalent of Italian salami. Fuet sausage is frequently found in Catalonia, Spain. Unlike the Butifarra, another in the family of Catalan sausages, fuet is dry cured. The name fuet means whip (látigo) in the Catalan language. Fuet de Barcelona is closely related to a much smaller Secallona, Sumaya (Somalla) or Espatec. The main difference is that fuet is covered with mold and the small sausages mentioned above are not.
