Anchovy Fillets Nardin & ldquo; Selection & rdquo; they are manually chosen for the size and compactness of the fillets themselves: each tin contains 12/14 fillets, the top of the top that the Cantabrian Sea can offer! Passed down for generations by the Nardin family, the whole process is; strictly manual, including the insertion of the fillets. The Secret to such an anchovy good, delicate and succulent? & nbsp; The freshness of the raw material: from the port to the factory the distance is; of only 6 km.

Anchovies are fished in spring, the so-called & ldquo; country anchovy & rdquo;, recognized as the best in the world: they are large, firm and with a large quantity; much higher fat, a factor that allows perfect salting. Once the batch has been purchased, the anchovies are gutted, their heads removed and placed in cans of the same diameter. A layer of anchovies and a layer of salt, like this; until it exceeds the rim of the tin by 5, 6 centimeters. At this point, a metal band called & ldquo; shirt & rdquo; is placed around the excess. so as not to drop the anchovies which will then be pressed in this way; to let out the excess water and allow the correct seasoning. & nbsp;
Why & eacute; the tin & egrave; always the same size? Why & eacute; the value of anchovies is determined by their number per layer: the fewer there are, the more; are larger, more & ugrave; are worth.
The tradition of salted anchovies has its roots back in time and tells a story that smells of Sicily but speaks Spanish. Basque to be exact. In fact, the Sicilians invented the salted anchovy: however, at the turn of the '800 and' 900, in the waters of Sicily the presence of these fish seems to disappear, so it is; island fishermen are forced to cross the Pillars of Hercules and turn their bows towards the Bay of Biscay.
And here, in the Cantabrian Sea, they discover not only that there are beautiful anchovies, large and firm, but that of this incredible & ldquo; abundance & rdquo; the Spaniards do not know what to do with them: for them they are a poor product, to be consumed only fresh, not worthy of being processed and preserved for the future. Aware of their potential wealth, some farsighted Sicilians decide to emigrate to Santogna, the capital of Cantabria. Even today, most of the anchovy producing companies in Cantabria are of Sicilian descent, just like Nardin.

The Company
The Company Nardin for more & ugrave; 100 years old represents a reference point for the Basque fish market: the great-great-grandfather of Mila Oliveri & ndash; who together with her husband Sebastian founded the company 25 years ago & ndash; part & igrave; from Sicily, precisely from Sciacca, to teach locals the art of salting anchovies.
Mila, who represents the fourth generation, still carries on the mission of her grandfather Leonardo, affectionately called with the diminutive & ldquo; Nardin & rdquo; , that is to enhance the land that has hosted them since the 19th century: local raw material fished with sustainable methods, only employees of Cantabria (90% still the same ones who have worked alongside Mila for 25 years) and craftsmanship with exclusively manual processes. < / p>
