Les Mouettes D’Arvor Concarneau, France

The Brittany coast is home to the Gonidec family and their cannery, named after the native seagulls, Les Mouettes d’Arvor. Their early focus on tuna and mackerel preservation in 1959 has expanded to a broader range of offerings
with the same dedication with which the family began. Be sure not to miss the selection of seafood rillettes.

    These are in my top three all time favorites, and here’s why…..

    Consider the spiced sardines we all like with the piri-piri, pickle, peppercorn, et. al. Now consider that there’s usually a lemon variation, and a tomato sauce style also available from almost all our favorite canneries.

    This tin brings together a bit of heat and some nice acid in the oil bringing the tangy zip of lemon pepper to these deens, but… there’s more….

    These are Les Mouettes d’Arvor Sardines… They’re your gateway to the sexy French sardine scene. You just gotta love French sardines. They have a firm texture, they’re always clean as a whistle, and the multitude of styles and flavors available will always leave you wanting more.

    These are no exception and they really deliver a bright yet spicy flavor in the tin. I’ve had this and other Les Mouettes d’Arvor Sardine styles, and I highly recommend you add these to your cart regularly.

    Just excellent! Not overly spicy with a subtle hint of heat. In a similar way, the lemon flavor is a bit muted. The pepper and lemon make a very pleasant combination without covering up the sardine flavor. The fish were plump and mostly firm.

    The flavors come together so nicely. I couldn’t help but think that whoever developed this recipe was talented. My first batch of French sardines. These go right up in the top of my list.
