Ortiz Fried Mussels in Escabeche Sauce: A Galician Gastronomic Jewel

Galician Culinary Tradition at Its Finest: The Fried Mussels in Escabeche Sauce by Ortiz are not just a canned seafood product; they are a testament to the rich maritime heritage of Galicia, a region in Northwestern Spain renowned for its exceptional seafood. Situated in the Ria de Arosa, known for its pristine waters and abundant marine life, Ortiz Conservas has anchored itself in the heart of Pobra do Caraminal, where the art of canning seafood has been refined over generations. The mussels, plucked entirely by hand and chosen at the peak of the season, celebrate sustainable and traditional harvesting methods. Fried in olive oil and bathed in a zesty escabeche sauce, these mussels are a tribute to the authenticity and flavors of Galicia.

A Delight for the Senses: The preparation of these mussels involves a meticulous process that honors the time-honored Galician culinary practices. The escabeche sauce, a traditional Spanish marinade typically made with vinegar, olive oil, and aromatic herbs, perfectly complements the rich and tender mussels, creating a harmony of flavors that is both bold and refined. This delicacy offers a unique tasting experience, bringing the essence of Galician shores right to your table.
