Mouettes d'Arvor Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Mouettes d'Arvor Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil are preserved in excellent quality olive oil that helps to soften and dissolve the bones allowing the entire fish to be eaten and enjoyed. They are packaged in an easy to open flip-top can with a long shelf life. They are all natural and rich in Omega 3. Try these sardines on a slice of toasted rye bread with coarse mustard.
The Conserverie Gonidec was created in 1959 by Jacques Gonidec and his parents in Concarneau, Brittany. He took the name of his favorite football team “Les Mouettes d'Arvor” (the seagulls of Arvor) for a line of top-quality sardines and fish. Now under the helm of the third generation, the company has expanded and updated its production facilities to meet European norms, while retaining its artisanal nature.
Small "shore boats" travel along the southern coast of Brittany using only sustainable fishing practices. Sardines are first "cured" in ice-cold salt water, which strengthens the flesh. After being cleaned, the fish are dried slightly and then quickly fried. After resting overnight, the fish are cut and fitted into the can, by hand, and covered in EVOO.
