Meet the newest fish swimming into our lineup of conservas from renowned Spanish fish producer Conservas Ortiz: Mackerel Fillets in Olive Oil. Sustainably fished, the mackerel are hand-cleaned, cooked and hand-packed in olive oil. The fish is meaty yet delicate with a clean, briny taste of the sea and a sumptuous richness from the olive oil.
How to use
These mackerel fillets are stunning straight out of the jar (just look at them!). Add to a salad, serve on crackers for a light snack or lay on top of slices of boiled potato and garnish with a generous pour of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. They also make a welcome addition in the kitchen—use instead of tuna in your favorite fish-forward recipes or try in our recipe for Mackerel Tortilla Española with Lemony Saffron Aioli.
About the producer
For more than 100 years and through five generations, the Ortiz family has been committed to traditional, sustainable fishing and preserving techniques. For example, when, every summer, huge shoals of white tuna appear off the northern coast of Spain in the Bay of Biscay, the Conservas Ortiz fishermen line-catch every fish individually. It's a slow, labor-intensive process that helps to protect marine ecosystems. All Conservas Ortiz products, from anchovies to ventresca tuna, are carefully prepared and packed in olive oil so that, much like a fine wine, they actually improve over time.
