  • Fish
  • by Ortiz
  • Spain

Anchovies caught fresh from the Cantabrian Sea off the coast of northern Spain are cured, de-boned, filleted, and jarred by hand to create Ortiz Anchovies. Since 1891, the Ortiz family has produced some of the world’s best anchovies, known for their dense flesh and bright, briny flavor. Play up the savory notes and try them as an appetizer alongside some Taleggio, Marcona Almonds, and Trois Petits Cochons Mini Toast.

“Anchovies are one of my favorite ingredients in the kitchen—they add saltiness, umami, and a briny complexity all at once. Ortiz has been jarring some of the highest quality anchovies from the coast of Spain for over a century, and they don’t disappoint. Combine Ortiz Anchovies with some garlic stuffed olives and Peppadews on a toothpick to make your own version of the classic Spanish dish, Pintxos Gilda.”
