These amazing anchovies are sustainably wild-caught in the Cantabrian Sea, which forms the southern portion of the Bay of Biscay.
Upon harvest, they’re packed in salt in large barrels to cure in a traditional “salumera” process for 5 to 6 months.
After being salt-cured to ensure complete safety/purity, the fish are hand filleted and jarred in olive oil.
Donostia Anchovies add depth to any dish in which these small, fatty fish are traditionally used, from pizzas to salads.
For a quick pintxo — the Basque term for tapas — try the classic “Gilda” tapa popular in the stunning coastal city of Donostia, which non-Basque Spaniards call San Sebastián.
Simply skewer an anchovy, an olive, and a guindilla pepper on a toothpick. (Any thin, medium-hot pepper will do in a pinch.)
