Percebes are one of the most sought after delicacies in Spain. They taste briny and fresh, and are painstakingly harvested off the wave pounded rocky shores of Galicia in Spain's north west.

At most Galician restaurants these long, slender percebes are served steaming hot with their triangular shells still attached. Our friends at Los Peperetes have accomplished an incredible feat, by preserving that very fresh briny flavor in a can. The masters at Los Peperetes are the first to attempt preserving the percebes this way - and thanks to them this is the first time this delicacy has been enjoyed in the U.S.

A plate of percebes in Spain can cost up to 100 euros per kilo, so this is a very costly delicacy, even fresh in Spain. The reason is that harvesting them from the rocky shores is extremely dangerous. Every year a brave fisherman dies working to cut away the percebes from their wave battered rocks.

Ingredients

Percebes (goose barnacles), water, salt.

"I'm a born and raised guy from the coast of Galicia, living in the States. I know the reasons why percebes are so expensive. The demand is extremely high(probably the most valued sea product), and there aren't that many, making the allowed season for catching them extremely short. They grow on awkward parts of rocks, only where the strong waves break against. This makes it extremely dangerous to catch(many people have died doing so). Then, to buy them here, they have to get imported which I guess adds even more cost to an already pricey item. I always make sure I feast on them once each time I go back home, they're a delicacy!"

"They're good, but certainly not worth $75/tin."
