The sardine is one of the fish richest in omega-3 fatty acids. These specimens, larger than sardines, are fished following the art of xeito in the Galician coasts and are purchased in the fish markets of Cambados, Vigo and Rianxo, among others. In addition, they are sardines caught at dawn, which is when these fish have a belly emptier of debris and therefore have a higher quality for subsequent canning.

When the specimens arrive at the factory, the first step is their evisceration, a complete cleaning that is followed by the removal of the head and tail, so that the result is a piece that can be easily consumed. They are then carefully roasted on grills and then passed to the packing area where they are canned one by one according to their size. This is where the dexterity of the packers comes into play, who spray their hands with oil so that, when the fish are touched and placed, they maintain a perfect presentation. Finally, the product is topped off with a layer of olive oil.

These sardines in olive oil look fantastic in classic recipes such as a tomato salad with olives. If you are a snacker, you can prepare a sandwich with several sardines, some piquillo peppers and pickles or a toast with capers. With this preserve you can also make a pâté by mashing the fish with fine herb spread cheese and use the oil to make a homemade mayonnaise.
