Conservas LaBrujula Mussels (Spain)
La Brújula is unanimously regarded as one of the world's finest names in preserved seafood. The mussels in this selection are soft in texture and tangy in flavor.

Mejillones en escabeche is a traditional Spanish method of preserving mussels in a combination of vinegar, olive oil, white wine, onions, garlic, bay leaves, peppercorns, and paprika. These marinated mussels can be bought in small tin cans in most stores in the country, but they can be prepared at home from scratch as well.
Mejillones en escabeche can be served either hot or cold, with toothpicks, and they’re often served as a tapa, accompanied by slices of rustic bread on the side for mopping up the sauce.
