These delicious little cockles are harvested from Galicia, Spain and are one of the most sought after molluscs from the sandbanks of the Galician rivers. They are small, firm in texture and taste of the sea. They are also both high in calcium and iron.
Conservas de Cambados offers these delicious little cockles packed in brine. Across Spain it is a tradition to offer canned seafood as a delicacy at restaurants and bars. 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.
To serve, open the can and drain the brine a bit. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and serve directly in the can with a few forks.
