Freshly harvested mussels are lightly fried in olive oil and covered with a vinegar and paprika marinade that adds a little zing to their flavour. Serve as an appetizer with toast or crackers.
In Galicia, mussels are suspended from giant rafts in the cool, nutrient rich water of the Rias – tidal rivers famous for their bountiful seafood. Only the finest mussels are selected to be prepared by Conservas de Cambados, and each tin is packed by hand.
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 just a few miles from where the seafood is harvested, so they are able to use the freshest fish, squid and shellfish available.
