This large package of superior boquerones are enough to serve a whole tapas party! The delicate white anchovies are tender and delicious, a mild, flavorful tapa famous across Spain. They pair especially well with crusty bread and piquillo peppers or salads. Skewer them with a pickle and an olive and serve as tapas, or eat right out of the package for a satisfying snack.
Ortiz white anchovies have been chilled since they were plucked from the Atlantic Ocean, filleted by hand and packaged so that you can enjoy the freshest boquerones in America.
Boquerones are a popular, tender white anchovy and a classic Spanish tapa. After their departure from the ocean, they are carefully hand cleaned in Spain and immediately pickled in vinegar, which “cooks” them. They are then packed in olive oil, parsley and vinegar. These delectable fillets are a customary dish in the beautiful seaside towns of the Basque Country.
Delicately salted with a much milder taste than traditional anchovies, these boquerones marinate in olive oil, white wine vinegar, and chopped garlic and parsley and don’t taste very “fishy” at all.
All boquerones in Spain are flash frozen for food safety reasons, before being immediately thawed and prepared in olive oil and vinegar. Anchovies and boquerones are exactly the same kind of fish, the only difference is that anchovies are heavily salted and boquerones are preserved with vinegar and olive oil.
Conservas Ortiz is famous throughout Spain for the quality of their tuna and anchovies. For over 100 years, five generations of the Ortiz family have preserved this stellar reputation.
