Saveur Magazine said Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."
The belly or "Ventresca" of the Bonito del Norte Tuna is the tastiest, fattiest, and tenderest part of the fish. It is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! It presents a much lighter and sweeter palate than the rest of the flesh of the fish, and is considered an exquisite delicacy.
The Bonito del Norte is the most valued member of the tuna family - highly appreciated for its white flesh, exquisite flavor, and delicate texture. This is not the boring albacore you buy in the supermarket!
It is fished using traditional hook and line methods, thus preserving the wonderful texture and flavor which is often lost when fishing with nets. Only the best of the catch is selected to ensure exceptional taste, freshness, and quality. This dolphin-free tuna from the Basque region of Spain (Bay of Biscay in northern Spain) is then gently cleaned by hand.
We love it in:
- Tuna sandwiches
- Stuffing piquillo peppers
- Pairing with grilled fennel
- Hors d'oeuvres
- Putting them on crackers or sliced baguette for an easy, tasty, and healthy appetizer.
