Nuri Sardines are not manufactured in Austria, but I have included them in Austrianfood.net, because Nuri is the most popular sardine in Austria. The special thing about Nuri is that those fishes from Portugal are not available in Portuguese supermarkets. 3,4 million Nuri cans are exported every year. 50 percent go to Austria. The other 50 percent are sold to Italy.
The secret behind the wonderful taste of Nuri sardines can be found in the fresh condition of the fish during the processing. Everything is made by hand. Industrial sardine manufacturers use frozen fish during their process. Nuri sardines come directly from the sea. Nuri sardines are exported to Austria since generations.
The wrapping is only made for the Austrian market. The cans which are sold to Italy are without paper wrapping.
I have just opened the can. Now I am ready to experience a wonderful sardine.
Inside the fish called “Nuri”. The fish factory was built in 1920 and is located in the suburbs of Porto.
Nuri consists of the finest sardines from Portugal in olive oil, hot sauce, a slice of carrot and cucumber, laurel, clove, and pepper corn.
Most of the time I enjoy Nuri sardines on a Friday evening to celebrate the beginning of the weekend with this fantastic meal and cold beer. Enjoying Nuri fish is always something which brings me close to heaven.
