Latest addition to the side of Güeyu Mar. The same octopus that they burn on their grates in Vega de Ribadesella Beach, put in a can brimming with freshness. Abel warns us: don't even think about throwing away the delicious juice that covers it! Blender in hand, add a splash of vinegar, and gradually add a thread of olive oil, a pinch of paprika and salt to taste and, ready, tasty mayonnaise to dip the octopus, the bread, and even the fingers!

The reputation of Güeyu Mar is beyond doubt by now 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 canning 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.
