Amongst the most sustainable species one can tin, garfish (or Belone belone) is a long and slender, needle-like fish known for its striking, silver skin, unique flavor, and firm texture.
If you enjoy sardines and mackerel, this offering in Portuguese olive oil is a must-try addition to your next tinned seafood spread. We recommend first trying them on grilled toast with piquillo peppers or giving them a quick batter, deep fry, and dowsing of lemon juice for a crispy, umami-rich appetizer.
