Bonito del Norte is considered by Spaniards the finest of tunas. This thin, white fish has a mild flavor and is lower in fat than other varieties of tuna. Each is line-caught individually and packed in vinegar and olive oil, a preparation known as 'Escabeche'.
Coleman Andrew, the Editor-in Chief of Saveur Magazine writes that Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."
The delicate flavor and texture of Bonito tuna is preserved by the ecological and dolphin-safe line-catching method, as it avoids the stress damage caused by harvesting by net. Enjoy this delicious tuna in salads, sandwiches, or as a stuffing for piquillo peppers.
Warning: once you taste this silky smooth tuna, you may never buy another tin of ordinary tuna!
