The smoked oysters are only tinned by the family-run cannery Don Reinaldo when the harvest in Galicia is exceptional, thus we can wait months for these small batches of tinned oysters. We recommend these canned smoked oysters on sourdough with cream cheese and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Don Reinaldo smoked canned oysters are large and meaty; there are around seven oysters in a tin. Canned oysters are highly nutritious conservas, an excellent source of omega-3, protein, vitamins and minerals.
What is the best way to eat canned oysters?
Try them in a vongole-style pasta dish, with garlic, chilli, parsley, extra virgin olive oil and a splash of white wine. Transform them into a smoked oyster pâté, top canapés with them, or drain them and add a splash of hot salsa to the tin.
