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 spicy olive oil is a must-try addition to your next tinned seafood spread. We recommend first trying them on grilled toast with preserved lemon or serving them in butter lettuce cups with red wine vinegar and crispy shallots.
