Ortiz Sardinas a la Antigua “Old Style” Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, tin


Ortiz preserves the Sardina pilchardus, the “true sardine”using traditional methods: cleaned by hand, one by one, then fried in olive oil. The flavor of preserved sardines improves over time, becoming more tender and delicate (if you plan to keep sardines for years, we recommend flipping the cans semi-annually).

Ranked #65 on the worldbestfish.com Overall list.

    This was the can I was most excited to try in my most recent order. Seeing that they were fried in olive oil sounded so interesting. I expected something a little crispy but instead they turned out to be one of the most texturally pleasing ‘dines I’ve had. They’re moist and clean and salty and plump. For a “no frills” pilchard, this can could potentially be the gold standard.
