Meaty, plump, and perfectly balanced, these rich, sweet, and spiced mussels are as timeless and delicious as it gets.
Made in Galicia in the old way, the sauce is a spicy twist on a classic escabeche, a medley of oil, vinegar, and pepper that predates modern Spain and harkens to a time when southern Iberia was part of the Islamic Empire called Al-Andalus (which became the name Andalusia). It is bursting with tradition and flavor. We enjoy them tossed with fusilli and green olives or toothpicking them straight from the tin.
