Gourmet Small Sardines in Spicy Sunflower Oil
Firm, tasty, tiny sardines (Sardinillas), hand-packed in Spicy oil - possibly as near as you can get to fresh sardines without buying them off the beach! Serve as a tapas dish or in a 'bocadillo' - a sandwich made using crusty bread - and perhaps some garlic mayonnaise.
From the Estuaries of Galicia, Spain, comes the most wonderful small sardines in spicy sunflower oil we have ever tried. This is a true Spanish food gem and we are very pleased to be able to offer it to you. Rich in vitamins D and B12, they are also an excellent source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids. The Spanish believe canned seafood is a delicacy to be shared and enjoyed! They take great pride, and great care, to harvest the best seafood and package it with the utmost care. The result is the purest, most delicate, and exquisite tasting seafood on the planet! A true delicacy.
Do not be fooled by other sardines. “Conservas de Cambados” makes a "Gourmet" line, which is their highest quality. "Gourmet" is clearly at the top of the front label as shown in the photo, the "Conservas de Cambados" logo is prominently displayed, and the tin is rectangular with rounded corners. The seas off the coast of Galicia in Northwest Spain are cool and rich in nutrients, making them an incredible fishing ground. Their facilities are very close to where the seafood is harvested, so they are able to use the freshest fish and shellfish available.
We have never tried a sardine more delicate and mild than those of Galicia. They are harvested in small batches from the cool waters of the Rias, tidal rivers in north western Spain. The result is a tender, mild sardine, with the delicate taste of the sea but without any strong fishy flavors.
