La Brujula's Small Squid in Olive Oil are hand-cleaned and prepared in a olive oil. These tender, baby squids are the perfect ingredient to add to a tired entertaining menu! La Brújula is known for the freshness of their raw materials and the delicacy with which they prepare each product, supervising every step of the process. The squids are fished with poteras, which is a technique used by fishermen who catch each piece individually, carrying our sustainable fishery that honors the ocean. It's just one of the many reasons we love these Small Squids in Olive Oil. Another one? The artisanal processing; after being selected according to their size, the smallest ones are hand cleaned one by one, cooked, the tentacles gently folded inwards, and are finally placed in the cans (each one brings between 6 and 8 pieces), covered in fine olive oil and a pinch of salt.
The simplicity yet refinement of each tin makes the Small Squids in Olive oil be great for a gift: put together a basket with a bottle of a rich Spanish wine and it makes for an amazing corporate gift, one that will cause the best impression. Or just buy them for yourself, they're such a treat to have around on a night when the fridge seems sadly empty.
Use these small squids to make a spectacular pasta sauce. Or you can drain them, bread them and fry them, making the always- loved fried calamari (with the best, most tender squid you've ever tasted). But if you want to stand out and prepare something different, original and delicious, this warm salad is amazing. Open a can of squids and pour the whole content into a bowl: add lemon and orange juice and marinate for five minutes. Then, put it all in a hot pan and sauté for a few minutes. Remove from the fire, let it sit for a while until it’s lukewarm, add some pickled peppers, vinaigrette, some toasted breadcrumbs for texture’s sake and top off with fresh oregano. All set! You have a delicious, home-made dish to share with your group!
