Imported from Spain, these high-quality mussels are perfect for tapas platters, or served over rice, pasta, or beans. Packed in a modestly spicy, vinegar-based Escabeche marinade, they add a boost of flavor to quick meals or snacks. Established in 1891 by Bernardo Ortiz de Zarate of Vizcaya, Spain, the world-renowned Ortiz seafood company is today operated by the family's fifth generation of food artisans. The Ortiz family upholds the traditional methods upon which the company was founded: local fishermen use pole lines to catch one-by-one the prized Bonito del Norte (Atlantic white tuna) and careful collection of shellfish. Ortiz seafood is known as "Delicacies of the Cantabrian Sea" and is procured around the globe by the most discriminating chefs, patrons, and specialty food shops.
