Months without ‘’R‘’ of Lobito de Mar

There is an old tradition that months without ‘R’ – May, June, July, August – are the best months to enjoy certain types of fish, especially sardines. This advice comes from a time when preservation and refrigeration techniques were not as advanced as they are today.

During the summer months, high temperatures caused fish to decompose more quickly, so it was recommended to consume it in months with ‘R’ in their name.

However, beyond conservation, there is a biological reason behind this tradition. Sardines, for example, are at their best in terms of flavour and texture during the months without ‘R’.

This is because during spring and summer, these fish feed on the abundant plankton in the sea, which gives them a tastier flesh richer in healthy fats.
