Patagonia Provisions Lemon Olive Spanish White Anchovies


These are not the salt-cured anchovies you may be used to, these are the same type of fish but processed more like the way sardines are typically processed, tinned in olive oil.

  • Sourced from thriving, well-managed populations in the Bay of Biscay, off Northern Spain
  • Small-scale purse seines reduce bycatch and prevent overharvest
  • Anchovies reproduce fast, making them a more renewable resource than many larger fish
  • Our fishermen belong to centuries-old cofradias, or guilds, which share profits and encourage cooperation
  • Processed, seasoned and canned by a family-owned certified B Corp, also in northern Spain, that employs mostly women

120g (4.2 oz) tin

    Delicious, 10/10, slay, boots down

    Patagonia anchovies are quickly becoming my favorite

    Full of umami, incredible texture, and the oil is just incredibly mixed in with rice. I kind of wish there were more lemon in this one, but that’s obviously a very easy thing to add.

    i ate the lemon olive anchovies with lentils and potatoes it was nice… um i didnt remember the note that was like there are bits at the bottom so i was just like yippee fish. i like how because theyre small you can eat the whole thing all at once!
    the bits are nice i like the lemon.. its a pretty strong flavor which i really like. i thought it tasted really similar to a sardine.

    Holy cow, these are some of the best anchovies I’ve had. Really good flavor, very nice firm fish, absolutely worth buying.

    If you’re apprehensive about anchovies because of the salty pizza ones, try these, you won’t regret it!

    I’m not sure what to make of this tin. The liquid + olives immediately transported me to a “this is beer” smell memory in a way that was neither good nor bad. It took me several bites to convince my brain that there was no beer involved. The lemon fragrance is nice as well as some lemon rind bits and 6-8 olive slices. The quality of the fish was evident and they had excellent texture (especially for a sardine-style anchovy). Less dry than most other competitors in this narrow anchovy space.

    I love lemon-forward flavors, I love olives, I love having extra bits in the bottom of the tin to eat. But somehow, somehow this tin just didn’t … work for me. And I really don’t know why, as the quality is clearly there. At any rate, my search continues for any sardine-style anchovy that can compete with the brilliant Olasagasti Anchovies a la Basque. If you want to try a Patagonia anchovy for the first time, I would recommend the roasted garlic version over these.

    First Anchovies experience! These look quite like sardines. Although this tin packs a punch with the distinct flavor medley. The lemon has a sharp bite, yet the olives act as a briny backdrop.

    Pleasantly surprised by the dual layer, considering there were six packed in here… like ‘put up a fight’ packed in. At the bottom there was easily 10 olives. Firm. Savory, Slurp-worthy oil, akin to a broth. Not greasy. 100% would buy again!

    I give this a 5 out of 5 and this will be something I will be picking up for future orders.

    Fish had a nice firm texture and you get a good amount of anchovies in the tin. Flavor-wise, I appreciated that the lemon/olives/olive oil didn’t overpower the fish… and I was able to savor the clean and mild flavor of the fish. I ate this straight from the tin and also with some crackers, cream cheese, and capers and then used bread to sop up the leftover olive oil/lemon/olives from the tin.
