Description: Barnacles (Pollicipes pollicipes) in brine, harvested in the wild in Spain and picked, cooked and packed by hand.
Barnacles are one of the most famous crustaceans in Galicia
They are scarce and difficult to capture, as they inhabit on rocky areas with strong waves, posing a great risk to their collectors, the “bites”; for this reason, they are one of the most appreciated and valued delicacies of Galicia
Once cooked, they are separated one by one and thoroughly cleaned; once sorted by size, they are “peeled,” retaining the nail and maintaining the appearance of an original barnacle
