Albacore Tuna

"Albacore Tuna (Thunnus alalunga), also known as albacore tuna, is an oily fish belonging to the Tunidae family. It is highly appreciated, due to its intense flavor and the soft texture of its white flesh. The fishing season or "costera del bonito" is between May and October, when it can be found in large groups in the Cantabrian Sea."

Frinsa Albacore Tuna is caught on the coast of the Cantabrian Sea, using traditional angling methods and catching them one by one, thereby assuring the quality of the product and protecting the environment.

Razor Clams in Brine

The razor clam (Ensis ensis) is a bivalve characterized by its long, arched valves. It lives in shallow waters, burying itself vertically in the sand and leaving a characteristic marking on the surface, in the shape of an eight. It feeds off plankton, which it absorbs through its gills."

Frinsa razor clams are caught in the Galician Estuaries. After selecting the finest specimens, they are subjected to a cleaning process to eliminate the sand. Then their hepatopancreas is removed, to enhance the flavor of the meat and they are packed by hand.

Mussels in pickle sauce

"The mussel is a bivalve that lives in the Atlantic. In a wild state it is attached to rocks in shallow, tidal areas and feeds off phytoplankton which it retains by filtering the water.

The mussels found in the Galician Estuaries (Mytilus galloprovincialis) are farmed on rafts or floating platforms from which ropes hang, submerged in the water, to which the mussels are attached. The largest mussel-farming region in the world is the Arousa Estuary."

Frinsa mussels come exclusively from Galicia. They are selected from the rafts at the estuary entrances, where the best nutrients are located. After being classified and cleaned, they are dehydrated and fried in Olive Oil, which prevents the sauce from spoiling, guarantees their texture and gives them a special bouquet. The canning and packing operations are done by hand, adding a mild, characteristic brine made in accordance with traditional recipes, to enhance the flavor of the mussels.
