  • About

Pejerrey—“smelt” in English—is a small silver fish (about 6 inches long), found in many places around the world, and easily caught in the cold waters off the Peruvian coast. This is a poor man’s delicacy, not only nutritious but also full of flavor. We like to use it in many recipes, from cebiches to sandwiches like this one.
