14.1 OZ - 600 gr net/400 gr drained - Spain

These anchovies were taken from the dense tuna banks in the waters of the Cantabrian Sea off the northern coast of Spain. The fishing boats of Ortiz capture the fish using traditional methods and preserve them perfectly.

Suggestions for Use
These excellent large anchovies will make a rich addition to salads, and give a greater aromatic depth to stews and sauces. These are some of the biggest and best anchovy fillets we've ever tasted. Not a bit too fishy, they will literally melt in your saute pan, and your mouth.

About Anchovies
This little fish is a small, warm-water relative of the herring, a Northern European staple. And just as the peoples of the north salted their herring to preserve them, the anchovy has long been salted by fishermen and packers in the Mediterranean, where it is a staple.

To preserve the anchovies, they are layered in barrels separated by layers of salt, and then pressed, removing the oil and preserving the fish. After six months, they are removed and packed in one of two ways.

For this exquisite tin, the fillets were then packed in olive oil, where they await your enjoyment.
