The cocarrois are a classic in Mallorcan gastronomy during Easter Week, they are small pasties and there are sweet and salty ones. The robiols are also crescent-shaped pasties that are usually filled with jam, angel hair and are usually the best sellers in any of the traditional ovens you can find on the island.
The days of Easter are days where fish is one of the star products on many tables and that is why we can also be found in many ovens on Mallorca with the typical fish empanadas, although there is also space for meat lovers with the typical meat empanadas with peas and sobrassada that make the local and visitors to the island delicious during these dates.
