Tuna in Olive Oil by Lorea Gourmet

‘Bonito del Norte’ tuna is probably the finest tuna available in Spanish seafood market. This canned tuna preserved in olive oil is the most delicately flavoured, unlike any other variety found in the world.

Harvested with the traditional method by net, this dolphin-safe tuna is packed in extra virgin olive oil which keeps it moist and flavorful. There is nothing better for your salads and sandwiches than Bonito tuna.

Line-caught and hand-packed, with a moist and silky texture, Spaniards regarded it the finest tuna variety. The quality is a far cry from the water-packed tuna you get at the supermarket. It’s sure that once you experience the smooth taste of bonito, you may never buy another tin of ordinary tuna!

Coleman Andrew, the Editor-in Chief of “Saveur Magazine”, writes that Bonito tuna is “one of the great gastronomic pleasures of everyday life.”

Bonito Tuna

Bonito del Notre tuna is quite common to the region, and every year these are migrated north to the Bay of Biscany to feast and fatten up during the summer months. Fishermen caught when they are at their top weight in a traditional fashion, with rods and live bait.

Not only is this humane, but it safeguards the quality of the meat. Within 24 hours, the tuna are cooked in seawater and packed by hand in olive oil.
