RED Tuna Tarantello in Olive Oil - 360gr
ANTICHE TONNARE DI BUGGERRU. Tarantello di Tonno Rosso is the abdominal muscle of the fish. It has a buttery, complex flavor; it’s not as rich as ventresca but has very little in common with ordinary canned tuna, with its dry, chalky texture and bland taste. The exquisite Mediterranean Bluefin Tuna, or Tonno Rosso is full of fresh flavor and and can be enjoyed right out of the can with a squeeze of lemon and a few drops of balsamic.
These Mediterranean Bluefin Tuna are never frozen and he entire production is done by hand; when the tuna arrives. It is butchered, and the cuts are selected and separated for ventresca, tarantello, and trancio. It is boiled in small batches, cooled, and canned using local Sicilian olive oil and sea salt from Trapani.
One of the basic conditions guaranteeing the excellent quality of this product is the fact that only tuna caught in the Mediterranean is used.
Only the top-quality cuts are selected for our careful processing: the tuna is steam cooked, placed in large containers and just like vintage wine, left to mature for at least six months. It is then placed in smaller tins, dressed with olive oil and left to mature for a further six months.
Our production is based on three select cuts: Ventresca, Tarantello and Tonno di corsa.
Ingredients: Tuna fish (Thunnus thynnus), refined and virgin olive oil, salt.
Straight from the tin or on a bed of fresh salad vegetables, or with the addition of thinly sliced onions and beans.
Mix it with cooked beans, asparagus, boiled potatoes, roasted red tomatoes, and sweet onions for a delicious and healthy Mediterranean feast.
We love tarantello in a quick and simple dish of spaghetti with EV olive oil, garlic and if you like cherry tomatoes.
