Quality of Bonito Tuna

  • Line-caught and hand-packed
  • Preserved in quality olive oil
  • Moist and silky texture
  • Continuing an ancient Galician fishing tradition

Settled in the pre-Roman times, the ancient Galician fishing village of Burela is located to the north of the walled city of Lugo on the coast of the Cantabrian Sea. For centuries it has been known in Spain for its unique Bonito del Norte.

This tender and delicately flavour white Tuna is the greatest prize of their fishing fleet. The sub-variety Bonito, recognised by its small dorsal fin, has fewer bones than any other tunas.

All in all it’s the use of extra virgin olive oil, which helps keep the Bonito tuna moist and flavourful.
