Codesa anchovies fillets with Himalaya saltz.
The only anchovies in the world cured entirely with Sal Rosa del Himalaya are made in Laredo, Cantabria. It is here where the family company Codesa, several times awarded in Europe for its careful craftsmanship, developed this exquisite gourmet product that combines the best of the sea and the mountains.
It recently received 3 stars in Brussels, the highest score, in the iTQi Superior Taste Award, the only quality seal of flavor awarded by opinion leaders, chefs and sommeliers awarded with Michelin stars.
On the one hand, Limited Edition-Series Rosa gathers first quality mouths. For this product, Codesa always uses the variety Engraulis Encrasicolus of the Bay of Biscay, different from those of other seas, which is caught in the purse seine, the most selective, ecological and traditional method.
Of all the specimens, caught at dawn during the spring months to ensure their optimum quality, the firm carefully selects the highest caliber.
On the other hand, Codesa uses the purest salt, free of contamination and rich in iron, calcium and magnesium to cure its anchovies. The Pink Salt of the Himalayas, where the fish remain for about twelve months before being cleaned by hand and filleted, is extracted from primitive fossil oceans and provides multiple health benefits. Not only does it contribute to proper bone mineralization, but it helps to prevent muscle cramps or to regulate the water content in the body and internal fluids.
Finally, the process closes when the anchovies are wrapped in a select organic extra virgin olive oil before being packaged. This last gourmet ingredient, made by the multi-award-winning Almazaras de la Subbética, puts the finishing touch to an article as select as healthy.
The Limited Edition-Serie Rosa emerges after three years of tests, tastings, analytical, nutritional and patent reports, in which Codesa has worked hard to enhance the already great qualities of the mouth of the Bay of Biscay. Excellent in flavor, meaty and of tender and smooth texture, these 100% Cantabrian anchovies are also a luxury complement for healthy and balanced diets.
