Top-quality tinned seafood is finally finding its place Stateside. Fish preserves are an age-old tradition in Spain, thanks in part to the country's affinity for seafood, as Spaniards consume more than 50 lbs. worth per person annually. So, they know what they're talking about. In restaurants, tapas bars, and homes throughout Spain you'll find canned seafood served as a delicacy, even straight from the tin or jar.
Donostia Foods seafood conservas is a selection of some of the best Spain has to offer. As Chef Rick Bayless says on The Feed Podcast (James Beard award-winner for Best Podcast) after sampling Donostia Foods Bontio del Norte tuna, sardines, and octopus, "People really need to get into this, canned seafood from Spain". It's true! They do!
Spanish canned seafood is unique because of the variety and high quality of products found in jars and tins, and the attention paid to traditional, hand-crafted methods of production. This is why Spanish anchovies and Bonito del Norte tuna from the Cantabrian Sea, and mussles, octopus, and sardines from the waters of Galicia, are such a culinary delight. They'll make you rethink what you think of what can come from a tin.
