Barnacles from Galicia, 120 grs, Peperetes
What do we find in this product?
The barnacle is one of the most famous crustaceans in Galicia; It is a scarce product and difficult to catch, since they live in rocky areas with strong undertows where the open sea hits violently, posing a great risk to its collectors, the "percebeiros". For all this, it is one of the most appreciated and valued delicacies in Galicia.
It is associated with great workmanship, since once cooked in steam, it is separated one by one, thoroughly cleaned, chosen by size, large barnacle and medium barnacle (parts are not specified because since it varies depending on the very irregular size of the food) and it is “peeled”, that is, the skin is removed but the nail is preserved, preserving the appearance of the original barnacle. Its covering liquid is water, salt and lemon, which is incorporated just before its hermetic closure for subsequent sterilization. It is advisable to serve hot and with a good white wine.
