Tuna meatballs

Tuna Meatballs

Roberta’s tuna meatballs are a perfect option for a classy aperitif. Don’t worry: they’re extremely easy to prepare! I promise!  You won’t need any béchamel sauce, nor will you end up with 20 dirty pots and pans after you’ve finished cooking. You won’t even have to wait for the dough to cool down. By the time you’ve thought about what you’re about to make, they’re practically ready!  Then all you have to do is create an even fry to prevent the croquettes from breaking, and it’s time to tuck in.  You can see the end result in the photo above: delicious little golden, crispy balls which are best enjoyed warm and in good company.  What do you think?

Spaghetti with anchovies

Spaghetti with anchovies

Through the ages, Italy has made some wonderful contributions to the world. Renaissance art, incredible architecture, unique music, Silvio Berl…. that is, mortadella, its 100% Mediterranean character… But above all else, if the rest of the world has an eternal debt to Italy, it’s for bringing us PASTA! Cheap, simple, easy to make, and the most versatile product on earth. There is no ingredient or sauce that can compromise a pasta recipe. Good pasta will always absorb the flavour and turn it into a mouth-watering dish.   On this occasion, Sonia has recommended combining it with cream and Conservas Serrats anchovies. Tempted to try your hand? ¡Avanti un buon piatto di pasta per tutti i nostri amici! Read more

Special salad with leek mayonnaise

Special salad with leek mayonnaise

If, at Conservas Serrats, someone asks us about glamour couples, we have to admit that we don’t immediately think of Brad and Angelina. Call it professional bias, but when we think of perfect couples, we think of Bay of Biscay white tuna with mayonnaise. We can’t think of any other couple that gets on so well and combines so perfectly.   Our friend Silvia evidently agrees: she adores cooking, as her blog shows (Jugando a las cocinitas), and has gone one step further by creating an original mayonnaise which provides the dressing for an outstanding salad dish. For us, whatever Silvia says is a culinary article of faith so we’re off to find our whisk! Read more
