Packed with the care and intention of a generations-old tradition, Ati Manel’s sardines in olive oil are a classic Portuguese tune played with expert precision.
Each tin boasts 4-6 fatty loins that come with skin and buttery-soft bones intact. They are big and beautiful and begging to find a home on your next seacuterie board. Delicious to enjoy on their own, we also invite you to pile them high on toast with thick slices of buffalo mozzarella and a gentle dusting of sea salt.

Certain Sardine learned from a fisherman how to blink his eye: to blink his eye to the waves of the sea, to blink his eye in the moonlight. “How do I do?” asked Sardine. “It’s easy, just blink your eye at whoever looks at you”. It is known that the fish do not have eyelids, they rest with their eyes open, with one eye on danger, the other on the shelter. But that Sardine started to see the world differently. In addition to resting, he went to sleep. And he started to dream, with all the land beyond the sea.
