Ortiz Mackerel in Olive Oil is an epicurean treasure, encapsulating the pristine waters of the Bay of Biscay, skillfully prepared by Conservas Ortiz to create a masterpiece of taste and texture.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

Imagery of the Bay of Biscay is evoked upon the tasting of Ortiz Mackerel in Olive Oil, conferring an allusion to the sea’s embrace within each morsel. The fish itself is a poem of the ocean: notes of saline breezes, deep briny residents, and untamed marine wilderness. In tandem, the olive oil corresponds with a comforting, fertile caress, a sotto voce to the robust choir of the seas. Harmoniously melded with the olive oil’s fruitiness is the mackerel’s marine profile, resonating with a savory umami that declares its standing within the culinary pantheon. A luxuriant tenderness ensues, neither overly fishy nor aggressively potent, but with an eloquence that whispers of moonlit Spanish docks and the secrets of artisan alchemy. The Conservas Ortiz lineage commands reverence, and their mackerel is not merely a canned fish but rather a conservatory of their maritime legacy.
