Da Morgada sardines, harvested off the coast of Portugal, are known to be among the most succulent in the world. The fish are provided by a family business, and their relationship with the fishermen and producer is based on a close kinship built over two generations. Once harvested from the sea - by seines and fishing nets - these top-quality sardines are canned within hours. The process involves manual cleaning, very careful handling and cooking on traditional grills prior to being canned, resulting in an undiluted marinade and fantastic ageing. These long-held Portuguese artisanal processes result in Da Morgada sardine's outstanding quality, flavor and nutritional value. Served simply in high-quality olive oil and sea salt, this classic product allows for the quality of the fish and its preserve to shine. The olive oil is golden and aromatic, encasing sections of meaty sardine filets that are tender, mild in flavor, and lightly smoky.
