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. Serve with good crusty bread and a glass of white wine, or add to a fresh salad or your favorite pasta.
Each sardine is carefully prepared and packed by hand in olive oil. The result is a tender, mild sardine, with the delicate taste of the sea but without any strong fishy flavors.
The seas off the coast of Galicia in Northwest Spain are cool and rich in nutrients, making them an incredible fishing ground. The fishery is located close to one of Spain’s largest Rías (estuaries), known as the 'Ría de Arousa'. Their facilities are very close to where the seafood is harvested, so they are able to use the freshest fish and shellfish available.
Canned seafood from Galicia is considered by Spaniards to be a gourmet treat, and is usually more expensive than freshly prepared fish. In fact, the longer the sardines remain in the tin, the more tender they become.
Note: You'll notice an increase in the price of some of our DEALS this year. This is due to the drastic increase in my wholesale costs including freight, inflationary costs in Spain (including olive oil) and the high cost of shipping in the US. As always, we attempt to keep these increases at a minimum.
