Almadraba tuna, but only from the entry season. La Ventresca is that special piece that Abel masterfully braises with oak, just as he does in the restaurant with fish and which is then accompanied by extra virgin olive oil of the Arbequina variety from Castillo de Canena. Tin a little higher than that of the rest of preserves to be able to present a little thicker pieces that allow to appreciate inside the reddish color typical of the highest quality tuna. The reputation of Güeyu Mar is beyond doubt at this point and the restaurant has become a pilgrimage destination for all fans of great fish and grilled cuisine. And, best of all, is that with Conservas Güeyu Mar it is possible to enjoy the embers of Playa de Vega just by opening one of the cans.
The origin of the canning project is very interesting. On the one hand, Abel de Güeyu Mar has been an avid consumer of quality canned goods and, on the other, he was aware that there were quiet months in the restaurant that lent themselves to testing and dedicating himself to preparing a preserve of the highest quality that it could be part of the menu at the peak of summer, thus simplifying the task without losing an iota of quality and relevance to the restaurant's philosophy. This is how, after a year of testing at a local technology center, followed by a year of consulting at a local canning firm, the step forward was taken and the first can of sardines in oil was presented in 2016. Since then it has rained and restlessness has given way to preserves in which the woods, oils or pickles are refined for each protagonist. An exciting world in which we have already traveled a certain path but in which there is still a long way to go.
