As Tomás and Castanyé can confirm: haute cuisine has a new ally.
Culinary journalists and representatives catering company representatives were invited to attend the event. All of them eager to discover and try out the qualities of the chefs’ sea bass. The company directors presented the product, emphasising its three distinctive characteristics: large size, silky texture and intense flavour.
Once again, the outstanding size of the product, on occasion as much as 4 kg,was one of the main talking points of the evening. The company directors explained the secret to raising the sea bass, based on the fish growing and developing in the wild waters of the Atlantic coast off Gran Canaria. These are the ideal conditions, thanks to the strong currents, the clean water and the perfect, constant temperature. “Always two miles off the coast, where we avoid pollutants and achieve a habitat certified as free of anisakis parasites, where the sea bass swim and fight against the currents until they achieve that optimal level of fat and texture,the characteristics that make them a top-of-the-range product,” the company executives pointed out.
Once again, the Great Atlantic Sea Bass astounds guests with its flavour, texture and culinary possibilities. With a growing presence on the finest tables thanks to Aquanaria.
