The Boquerón Picar&Picar 200 gr are anchovies with garlic and parsley and are presented in a 200 gr package.
This product is preserved in sunflower oil, vinegar and garlic.
The tray must be kept between 0 and 4ºC.
For its preparation we use the clean loins of the anchovy, which initially have brown meat.
The silvery reflections of their outer skin stand out and they are submerged in a tray (glass, never metal as it would be attacked by the acetic acid in the vinegar) with salt, water and vinegar for 3 hours in salted water and 6 hours in vinegar in a cool place.
The loins of the anchovy, which were previously brown, will turn white as the vinegar takes effect.
After this operation and once the liquid has been drained, they are garnished with plenty of chopped garlic, olive oil and parsley.
This food is usually eaten cold with a beer (wine is not recommended as vinegar interacts badly with wine).
It is a very typical appetizer in Spain, especially in the warmer months.
It is typical in Spain to see them on trays on the counters of many bars and restaurants.
The portion is often served decorated with pickles: capers or olives and is accompanied by potato chips on a large plate.
In Spain, this product is sold in large supermarkets in plastic tubs of different sizes to which only garlic and parsley are added.
