Ortiz Sardines in Olive Oil, Old Style
These exceptional sardines by Ortiz are prepared 'a la Antigua' – hand cleaned and slow-cooked in virgin olive oil. The result is an exceptionally tender and very mild sardine. Packed with beneficial oils, calcium, and vitamins, sardines are one of the healthiest fish you can eat. They are also low in toxins and a highly sustainable fish species.
Ortiz sources fresh sardines and cleans them by hand in the Basque Country. Each fish is slow-cooked in virgin olive oil, resulting in a very tender sardine with a mild, fresh taste. This differentiates them from industrially produced sardines, which are steamed or flash cooked and can produce a chalky or dry tasting fish. These sardines are packed in only virgin olive oil and salt, nothing else.
Enjoy these sardines from Ortiz by lightly toasting slices of crusty and fresh bread topped with crushed tomatoes and garlic with these sardines on top. It goes well on crackers, on a canapé, or add to a fresh green salad too!
The sardines can be stored for years, becoming more tender over time. Store in a cool, dark place such as a pantry. Refrigerate after opening.
