Cuca sardines are premium quality, delicious, sardines from Spain. These ones are preserved using the traditional Spanish vinegar preservation method (escabeche). The vinegar’s acidity cuts through the richness of the sardine leading to a fresher, lighter finish. But they are also available in olive oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, lemon, spicy chilli, and tomato sauce.
There’s nothing quite so good as tinned sardines from Spain. We reckon the best ones come from Spanish company, Cuca. Cuca tinned seafood products are so good that restaurateur, Frank Camorra (Movida), began importing them himself and uses them in his acclaimed restaurants.
about the producer
Cuca have been preserving fish and seafood since 1932. The shallow, fjord like saltwater estuaries – the “Rias” – that face the Atlantic ocean in the north west of Spain produce anchovies, mussels, octopus, tuna, squid and sardines of outstanding quality. Cuca use only the best raw materials. They harvest by hand, clean and pack each morsel by hand and use nothing but the raw natural materials, seafood, olive oil and brine. The results are products that retain their natural shape and texture through the tinning process. You can really taste the difference.
