Would it be wise to attempt to survive exclusively on boquerones, crusty bread, and cold lager, preferably while perpetually wandering with friends amongst outdoor cafés and cozy taverns and striking up conversations with an endless cast of eccentric congenial characters? Perhaps not. But, it would be worth a try.
"Boquerones: Priceless! In James A. Michener’s ‘Iberia’ he says, 'I too crave anchovies above any other food.' The word ’too’ is referring to King Carlos V. When... Donostia had white anchovies available, I had to try them. The montadito (Spanish tapa) recipe that came with them is outstanding. These are the best anchovies I’ve ever tasted." - Jeffrey W.
White anchovies, particularly these white Cantabrian anchovies (boquerones) from the waters of northern Spain are simply that good. The same fish as our renowned salt-cured anchovies, prepared in a different fashion. Filleted by hand, as is tradition, and packed in just extra virgin olive oil and wine vinegar with a touch of salt for a mild, fresh, and tangy flavor quintessential of San Sebastián. A favorite example (if you hadn't already surmised) of the classic ingredients you'll find at pintxo bars throughout the Parte Vieja.
Please note, boquerones are a delicate, semi-preserved product unlike the rest of our seafood conservas and thus the following information is pertinent:
