DESCRIPTION

Our Mussels in Pickled Sauce by La Curiosa are an authentic Spanish delicacy. These premium mussels come from the best-located rafts in the famous Ria de Arosa (Galicia, Spain). Once selected, they are fried in olive oil and lovingly hand-packed, one by one, and covered with an  exquisite escabeche sauce made only with natural ingredients: paprika, black pepper, cloves, and bay leaves, that's all.

These tinned mussels, in Spanish "Mejillones en Escabeche", are medium size and have a spectacular flavor, with a savory and smooth escabeche that will delight you. For us, it's a gourmet preserve made by La Curiosa, a young Spanish company known for the quality of its products and its respect for traditional recipes.

 

Are Mejillones en Escabeche healthy?

Mussels are a nutrient-rich seafood known for their high protein content, along with significant levels of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, selenium, and zinc. They are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which support heart health and reduce inflammation. Additionally, mussels provide essential amino acids necessary for various bodily functions, making them a nutritious addition to any diet. 


What is "Escabeche"?

Translated to English, it is"pickled sauce". It is a traditional Spanish sauce and method of preserving and marinating food, typically fish and seafood, in a mixture of vinegar, oil, and various seasonings like bay leaves, and paprika. This process not only enhances the flavor but also extends the shelf life of the food.

What a pleasure it is to find entrepreneurs like Cristobal Fernández. Don't expect from him a romantic lineage of three generations dedicated to the world of preserves.

He's crazy about preserves, but of course, it runs in the family. His mother worked in a canning factory for over 15 years, so you can imagine that there was always a can on their table at home.

After finishing his studies, he became curious to learn more about the canning world, and he even had the opportunity to work in a factory for a year.

When you combine a passion for something with an entrepreneurial spirit, there's no turning back. As I mentioned before, he's full of youth, and he's eager, very eager, to do things right, eager to bring freshness to a too-conservative sector, eager to innovate and start anew. Innovation in gastronomy is crucial for capturing new generations. His mission is to offer preserves of the highest quality, tailored to the most discerning palates.

They are staunch defenders of the quality of Galician preserves, so they only produce in the best factories in the Ría de Arousa area. They have a deep passion for the craft, for the people of the sea, for our estuaries, for our environment, and for our tradition. That's why they do things just as they've been taught generation after generation.

They continue to make their preserves with delicacies from the Galician estuaries and making their sauces following traditional recipes only with natural ingredients and no additives. Maintaining forgotten processes like the toasting of some fish.

At La Curiosa, they only make high-quality preserves from the best seafood and fish caught during the season and at their peak ripeness. The product is made by hand, carefully canned and packaged. Selecting and placing each piece in the can to ensure the best presentation at the time of tasting.

Thanks to their passion for doing things well, they are able to achieve an exceptional product.

The brand's goal is to dress up a gourmet product as a gift. "They want to take canned goods out of the pantry and turn them into delicious gifts."
