Canned shellfish in Spain is considered a delicacy, and is enjoyed country wide in restaurants and bars. Squid, or Chipirones, harvested off the Galician coast are very tender. Each squid (stuffed with its tenticles) is delicately placed in the can, filled with olive oil and sealed for freshness. Warm the can in hot water for 3-5 minutes and serve with crusty bread.
“Conservas de Cambados” is based in Galicia in Northeast Spain. This is the region of the Arousa Ría, which is well-known not just for its size, but also for the richness of its marine life. The seas off the coast of Galicia in Northwest Spain are cool and rich in nutrients, making them an incredible fishing ground. “Conservas de Cambados” is located close to one of Spain’s largest Rías (estuaries), known as the ‘Ría de Arousa’. Their facilities are very close to where the seafood is harvested, so they are able to use the freshest squid and shellfish available.
