Animosity toward anchovies is endemic, thanks to the prevalence of poor quality examples cursing supermarket shelves. THESE ANCHOVIES ARE THE ANTIDOTE.
Premium Cantabrian anchovies from the waters of northern Spain, wild-caught via sustainable fishing techniques and delivered fresh to the factory, presalted, cured in a "salmuera" brine of water, fat, and sea salt, and ultimately hand filleted and packed in olive oil. Cantabrian anchovies are prized for their quality, meaty fillets ranging from reddish brown to light caramel with flavor that is the ideal balance of oil, sea salt, and fish; nothing like the typical anchovies found in supermarkets.
For a quick pintxo, skewer an anchovy, an olive, and a guindilla pepper on a toothpick to make the classic 'Gilda' found in bars throughout San Sebastián. Pairs well with a good red wine from Rioja.
You'll spend 52% less than what you would elsewhere, even though these anchovies have the power to change minds; as one customer states, "Great product that I will buy again... even my wife, who is not a big fan of anchovies, enjoyed these very much. Flavorful and not too salty, they are great on good crusty bread with a sliver of butter!"
The best European anchovies (Engraulis encrasicolus) are found in the Cantabrian Sea, in the cool waters of the Bay of Biscay, and are one of the foremost delicacies in the Spanish tradition of preserving seafood and shellfish in jars and tins. With a short catch season that typically extends only from early March until the end of June, the unique qualities of the species, and the extensive work done by hand throughout the preservation process, the fillets command a premium price. However, we’re able to import them directly ourselves, which allows us to offer some of the best anchovies available at a price that doesn't seem preposterous.
