Atlantic and Mediterranean, our delicious sardines are kept fresh from the moment they are caught. They become even tastier and nutritionally rich with the lemon that flavours the olive oil. Savour this flavour with a bit of rustic bread or toasts, accompanied by a nice glass of white or red wine, someone to taste it with, or simply to please your ego!
A lemon and a sardine fell in love. She used to visit him onshore, and in turn, he would visit her at sea. From then on, sardines and lemons go hand in hand, symbolizing a passionate and well cared for heart.
