Choose 1 or 6 tins of 3 oz. each
Sardines (72.2%), sunflower oil (21.2%), spices (piri-piri, carrot, red pepper, clove, laurel) (5.6%), and salt.
These small, delightfully tender sardines are packed in sunflower oil that has been seasoned with red pepper, carrot, piri-piri chiles, cloves, and laurel. These ingredients add savory complexity rather than bold heat. Enjoy them as you would other sardines in sandwiches and salads, in tapas, or right out of the tin.
Jose Gourmet seafood combines highest quality Portuguese-style tinned fish (conservas) with playful Portuguese design & art. Jose Gourmet provides the art & design, while the fish is prepared by La Gondola, one of Portugal’s oldest conservas producers.
La Gondola has been in production since 1940, using fresh sardines (the catch of the day) when they’re in season and their oil levels are perfect – imparting a more tender texture & better flavor. They use traditional “pre-cooked” methods that preserve the fish at its peak.
Store tinned fish in a cool, dry place. Refrigerate in a sealed container after opening the tin.
RECIPES & TIPS
Spanish & Portuguese-style tinned fish (conservas) are cooked and ready to eat right out of the tin. They’re meant to be enjoyed on their own (perhaps with some nice crusty bread or a light salad) or with simple accompaniments rather than as an ingredient, as further cooking them can damage their flavor and texture.
Enjoy spiced sardines right out of the can as a tasty, healthy snack. They’re also a great addition to salads, sandwiches, hors d’oeuvres, tapas, etc.
