For more than 100 years and through five generations Conservas Ortiz has perfected their techniques in order to achieve greater quality in full respect of tradition.
Their craft techniques ensure that the fish that are caught do not suffer, which improves the flavor and texture of our product. These are Sardinas a la Antigua that have been cleaned by hand, fried and then hand-packed in olive oil.
The result is succulent, meaty fish that takes on extra richness from the olive oil. The olive oil also mellows the sardines’ inherently strong flavor to create a buttery, delicate bite with hints of the salty Bay of Biscay from which the fish originate.
Sardinas a la Antiqua are ideal for a quick meal. Add them to a salad of watercress, cucumber and tomatoes for a lovely light lunch. For an easy appetizer, toss pieces of sardine with a squeeze of lemon and chopped parsley and let them marinate for a half hour. Then lay them on a piece of grilled bread, drizzle with olive oil and enjoy.
Sardines improve their taste over the years, making them taste unctuous and delicate.
