Large Size Anchovy
Our anchovies spend at least 6 months maturing until they reach their best. From that moment on, we select the largest anchovies and prepare them following our 'traditional' recipe. Thanks to the know-how of expert anchovy masters, they are individually hand filleted and finally preserved in olive oil.
Once opened, in order to maintain all its full flavor for up to five days, it is important to keep the anchovies in the refrigerator, preferably covered and submerged in olive oil, adding more if necessary. Refrigerated olive oil may be semi-solid, so take it out of the package for a few minutes at room temperature and it will become liquid.
Anchovies hold a special place of honor in the kitchen, not only because of their delicious flavor and versatility, but also because they have a number of unique properties:
- High biological value protein source.
- High content of OMEGA 3 fatty acids, which our body does not generate by itself.
- Rich in vitamins A, D, E and K, which help strengthen the immune system.
In this case they are packed in olive oil, rich in oleic acid, which helps regulate harmful levels of cholesterol in the blood.
