The star products
The products of the Cantabrian Sea are known worldwide for their singularity and exquisiteness. They have characteristics that make them unique; and no wonder. Cantabrian anchovies from the Basque Country stand out for their extraordinary quality and their special and careful preparation: this can be seen in their size, their cleanliness and absence of bones and their right proportion of salt. The fishing of these anchovies takes place mainly in the month of May, and from this date is when the salting process begins.
The Cantabrian White Tuna from the Basque Country, together with the anchovies, is another of the star products. It belongs to the tuna family and is one of the highest quality varieties, since it is characterized by an exquisite flavor and a softer texture than the rest of its species. The most notable culinary distinction is that the flesh of the bonito is tastier and softer to the palate. On the other hand, the color is much whiter than that of the rest of the tuna.
