'Jurel' Small Horse Mackerel in Olive Oil
Perhaps you've never heard of jurels before, but these silvery skinned fish are similar to sardines in texture, but very mild in aroma and with a buttery taste. We think these jurels are the gateway to loving sardines. Also known as horse mackerel they are hand-selected before being toasted and placed in salted olive oil. High in protein and lower on fat content than similar fishes, the filets make an excellent garnish for salads, table bread, or sandwiches. Try pairing them with your favorite apéritif.
