These exquisite anchovies, packed in the finest Spanish olive oil, are hand-packed according to traditional methods using carefully selected fresh fish harvested off the Cantabrian Coast in northern Spain.
The anchovy, a traditional food of the Basque Country, is a mainstay of this region's fishing economy. The Spanish name "boqueron" comes from the size of the anchovy's mouth or boca, which is large in proportion to the rest of the body. Anchovies are typically harvested in the spring when they accumulate the most fat and flavor. Small nets are used to protect the quality of the fish and reduce by-catch. Once caught they are gutted, placed in barrels with salt-layer separations and weighted. Once the fish has matured, about 3-7 months, it is washed to remove bones and skin, and canned with high quality olive oil.
Anchovies are high in Omega-3 fatty acids which help in the prevention of cardio-vascular disease and reduce cholesterol. They are also rich in iodine, calcium, Vitamins A, D, B12, B6, B2 and unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid.
