Squid caught in the Atlantic and canned by hand on the spot in Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain. Preserved in their own ink to accentuate their flavor.
Meaty, lean, briny, and bold, these small pieces of squid in a flavorful, ink-infused sauce are an affordably delicious way to experience calamari at home.
After being harvested off the coast of Spain, the squid land in the storied town of Pontevedra, a village synonymous with quality conserva, where they are cut and canned entirely by hand. Their sauce (a mix of tomato, onion, spices, and of course squid ink) makes a perfect base for rice dishes like risotto or paella, but also goes gorgeously smeared on toast with a pile of these tender pieces laid on top.
