Squid in Olive Oil (Chipirones)
Cephalopods such as squid have a special prestige, and are great a favourite in bars and restaurants across Spain. Harvested from Galician shores, these deliciously tender squid are stuffed with their own tentacles, before being canned in a savoury olive oil to ensure freshness. Depending on the yield each fishing season, the size of squid vary resulting in different quantities in each tin. Used in many traditional tapas recipes and paella dishes, this delicacy with its smooth texture and mild taste will surprise the most demanding palates.
Best when enjoyed with an ice-cold Cava or Estrella beer. Limited production due to the manufacturer’s strict adherence to quality standards and sourcing of ingredients at the peak of the season.
