Alalunga Hake Cheeks (Cocochas)
"Cocochas de Merluza" Without a doubt, the most exquisite part of the hake (merluza.) Each cheek is carefully removed and delicately slow cooked before being preserved in high quality olive oil from the region of Navarra. Tinning and preserving the cococha is extremely rare, and makes this conserva truly unique.

These hake cheeks are rare, tasty and delicate. They are best enjoyed in a simple presentation. We like to garnish them in high quality olive oil and salt. You can also make a green sauce with parsley, oil and salt to give them an extra level of flavor.
This is a non-perishable product, so it will last for for quite some time! Keep stored in a cool and dry place and away from direct sunlight. Once you open it, and if you have some left, make sure to keep it tightly sealed and refrigerated. Also, make sure to not heat the tin up in the microwave.

Hailing straight from the Cantabrian Sea in the North of Spain, Alalunga premium tins are forged from the passion of gastronomy. The goal of Alalunga is creating a gourmet tinned seafood experience, with an emphasis on modern fishing practices and traceability. Alalunga exclusively sources their fish from markets along the Cantabrian Sea, placing an added focus on the culinary traditions of the region.
Alalunga conservas are prepared in extremely small batches due to the high quality of their ingredients, seasonality of the fish and the presentation of their packaging. Each tin is numbered to account for traceability and accompanied with information about the origin of the fish within.
