Regular price $36.00

6 (six) assorted tins of imported Portuguese produced Mackerel(Cavala) varieties.  This random assortment is a curated flight that highlights the different production methods and flavors throughout Portugal. Mackerel is a firm & rich tasting oily fish with high health & wellness attributes, but when tinned the flavor mellows.  Tinned mackerel is great when served directly out of a can or can be used in recipes due the firmness that flakes more like tuna than sardines. 

A Pairing of crackers are included for an easy snack.
