These berberechos, (cockles) from the Galician estuaries are gently cooked in seawater. Preserved in a light brine they are then hand packed to ensure perfect condition.

Being low in fat and calories they are increasingly popular for their health benefits.

Because they are preserved in a simple and gentle brine the taste is a clean taste of the sea (sea water) with a silky texture.

Tinned cockles are very popular to make empanadas (traditional Galician pies) and make a classic Spanish tapas. They also work well in salads, soups, risotto and paella, or stewed in tomato sauce and served with pasta.

Josep Carbonell, Brindisa's executive chef, makes a refreshing tapa to be served with chilled vermouth.

He takes the brine from the can, mixed with X.V. olive oil, sherry vinegar, lemon juice and paprika to dress the cockles.
