Once again, we beseech you: do not be deterred by the tin. These plump mussels in escabeche, a vinegary marinade that evokes a Spanish cafe at sunset, will surprise and delight even the most skeptical (most of the most skeptical; a neighbor could not be swayed).
Our mussels come from the waters of Galicia in northwest Spain. The region’s rugged shores provide an abundance of crustaceans and mollusks, many of the best harvested for canning and preservation. The escabeche is a marinade of sunflower oil, vinegar, paprika, nutmeg, garlic, cinnamon, and salt. A tin makes a simple, flavorful tapa that pairs well with a dry Spanish cava.
The Galician mussel is considered one of the best in the world, to the extent the shellfish is celebrated at festivals throughout Galicia during the summer and autumn.
For those of you still hesitant to try these mussels, consider our number one customer's statement:

Inhaled the first couple of tins so fast I had to place another order in the interest of my democratic household. Well, now we're all addicted. It's a wonderful problem to have. Buy these.
You'll save 50% compared to similar mussels in escabeche purchased elsewhere because we import them directly ourselves.
