Ortiz Sardinas a la antiqua en aceite de oliva

"In 1891, Bernardo Ortiz de Zarate founded in Vizcaya (Spain) Conservas Ortiz. Since then, five generations have overseen the family business and continued to advance the artisanal and traditional fishing and processing techniques of Bernardo. From the beginning, Ortiz has dedicated itself to the preparation of the highest quality canned seafood. Today the Conservas Ortiz label is one of the most recognized labels in the world for tuna, anchovies and other related specialty canned fish, its products sold in over 40 countries."

On the back label of the JAR is a date of creation and this:

    "The Ortiz Sardines are elaborated with fresh fish. They are cleaned by hand one by one and fried in olive oil following a traditional recipe. Sardines improve their taste over the years, making them taste unctuous and delicate."

And they ain't cheap. 

I plated up the jar just for an afternoon delight, grabbed the Tobasco Brothers, Green & Red, and planned to offer some to the Wife. She was on the phone too long so I hid the evidence quickly.

Solid, large, delicious. Four out of five tins.
