Plump orange mussels from the coast of Cantabria are a favorite in the bars and restaurants of the region. Conservas Lolin captures the fresh taste and tenderness of just cooked mussels in their canned gourmet mejillones.
They are prepared with a vinegar and paprika marinade that adds a little zing to their flavour. Serve as a tapa with toast or crackers.
In Spain, mussels are farmed off the Rias, the cool tidal rivers of this northern Spanish region. Only the finest mussels are selected to be prepared by Conservas Lolin, and each tin is packed by hand.
The seas off the coast of Cantabria in Northwest Spain are cool and rich in nutrients, making them an incredible fishing ground. Conservas Lolin are located in Castro Urdiales, a famous fishing village in Catanbria. Their facilities are very close to where the seafood is harvested, so they are able to use the freshest fish, squid and shellfish available.
