Shopping for gourmet canned seafood - La Conservera by Frinsa


There is a delicatessen in Madrid that all seafood lovers should definitely visit: La Conservera by Frinsa. It is a great place for tin can shopping, and despite the fact that we sometimes consider canned food less interesting than fresh food, I have to say that the quality of products inside Frinsa’s cans is amazing! a wonderful marine breeze for your next menu!


If you are not familiar with Spanish seafood from Galicia, Frinsa is definitely the place to visit,  Victor is responsible for managing the delicatessen and he is happy to share his passion and knowledge of extraordinary seafood with customers. Either as an “aperitivo” or a main dish, seafood in Galicia is a great option. We are lucky that in Madrid, we have a good place to buy it from.


Among the delicatessen's specialties, my favorites are the mussels, cockles in brine and yellowfin tuna fillets. The food on offer at Frinsa's is perfect for enjoying by oneself, or for sharing with friends. 


I would even recommend the delicatessen for buying gifts, as they also provide personalized, elegant boxes containing their products. I have recently learned that, like wine, preserving seafood for a long time in tin cans increases its flavor, so don’t worry, you can wait for that special occasion before opening the can! Don't forget to visit this unique and special shop.

Existe una tienda gourmet en Madrid para amantes de las conservas de mar, que no hay que perderse: La Conservera de Frinsa. Es sin duda de los mejores sitios para hacer shopping de latas, y aunque a veces las latas estén consideradas como comida de segunda tengo que decir que se están convirtiendo en tendencia total y que la calidad  de Frinsa no tiene discusión.

En caso de que no estés familiarizado con el producto de Galicia, te diré que unicamente entrando en la tienda te sitúas en un entorno marino lleno de aromas y añoranzas... Victor, el encargado de tienda es un apasionado del producto y relata de maravilla las características de los productos. Tenemos suerte de contar con este reducto gallego de conservas en Madrid!


El producto de las latas funciona igual de bien para un aperitivo que como ingrediente de un plato principal. 
Entre las especialidades que puedes encontrar, mis favoritos son los mejillones en escabeche, los berberechos al natural y la ventresca de bonito fresco.
Una buena opción es regalarlo a los amigos,  en la tienda hacen cajas personalizadas muy elegantes como regalo. 

Hemos aprendido hace poco que, como el buen vino, guardar una lata en la despensa es bueno y cuanto más tiempo (siempre sin superar la fecha de caducidad, claro), mejor se conserva su sabor. Por lo que, sin prisas, busca la mejor ocasión para disfrutar de tu compra.
