About Güeyu Mar: Come for the cheeky packaging, stay for the flavorful, ocean-meets-grill tinned fish.  Güeyu Mar roughly translates to “eye of the sea”, a nod to the coastal region in Northern Spain where Chef Abel Alvarez lives and cooks. Abel’s small, 60,000 tins-per-year operation allows his team to focus on creating an expression of coastal Spain through the eyes of a great chef.

Chef: Chef Abel Alvarez

Where it's from: Asturias Region of Spain

Why it's unique: Aside from the wonderfully weird packaging, Güeyu Mar takes a different approach to canning, inspired by Abel’s culinary background and (totally normal) obsession with fire.  Where a traditional cannery would steam the fish before packing, Güeyu Mar cooks their fish over a brasa, or wood and charcoal burning grill, using the embers to impart a graceful smokiness that balances fruity sweetness from the olive oil it’s packed in.  The process of grilling the fish protects it from absorbing too much of the oil, so you always taste fish first, oil second.

Ingredients: octopus, extra virgin olive oil, salt

How it tastes: A pure expression of the product; mild, tender, with a hint of char.

How to use it: The perfect *at home* octopus experience without all the fuss.  We recommend drying it, tossing it on the grill, adding some leftover bread, herbs, citrus and creating a panzanella that will impress all of your friends.

What you get: One 5.6oz (160g) tin, 2-2.5 tentacles per serving.

Shelf stable. Lasts 2-3 days refrigerated after opened.
