Anthony Bourdain Finds The Best Canned Seafood In The World

by Tina on May 2, 2011 · Shellfish Recipes

That’s right, I’m here to say seafood in a can is fabulous. It’s actually some of the best in the world. And you actually thought you had to get the best tasting seafood from a fish monger or at a market. I am here to tell you that canned seafood is some of the best tasting seafood you will ever having the privilege of tasting. This stuff is absolutely spot on. Very natural tasting but with a much higher quality that what you get fresh.

There are only a couple of types I would suggest eating and spending the money on if you are willing to spend that much cash. Razor Clams and Oysters are without a doubt my favorite. They have a natural oil that allow them to taste better as they sit in their own juices. I have done quite a bit of traveling and have tried many types of canned seafood. It is very common in Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, and most European locations to serve canned seafood at pubs/bars. The quality of course is going to be better in Spain, which includes the Spanish Islands Ibiza, Mallorca, and Menorca. I would suggest staying sober while on vacation in Spain and wandering in to the pub to order some of these tasty treats. I found out that the more liquid beverages I consumed while in Barcelona, Spain the tastier these lovely morsels were… I also found that the words “this rounds on me” rolling off my tongue with such ease. And with these things costing me three to four times more than my drinks it was a very expensive evening. I have absolutely no regrets spending the money because it really was delicious and worth it.

You can order these online from one company that has the corner market on this but I will warn you it is very pricy. I suggest you just take a nice trip to Spain this summer and try them with a nice glass of wine and dip a piece of Barra (baguette) in the left over juices.

Wine, canned seafood, and Barra… doesn’t get and better then that.
