Tuna Fillets in Olive Oil 300gr
Yellowfin Tuna: Yellowfin Tuna is named for its bright yellow coloring on its fins. Yellowfin Tuna is also at times called Ahi Tuna and is used in "light" canned or pouched Tuna products. Yellowfin Tuna is slightly more flavorful than Albacore and is the largest of Tuna that are canned. This Tuna may weigh from 30 up to 400 pounds!
Handmade by Sarda Affumicati in a fully modernized facility in Sardinia Island - Italy, this is the tuna to seek out when you want to enjoy tuna at its finest. The selected best Tuna are cut, skinned, de-boned and steamed. An important note is that most processors add water back to the meat after cooking to increase its weight for selling purposes. Sarda Affumicati does the opposite and dries off as much water as possible to concentrate the wonderful flavor of the fish. The resulting product is then filleted and hand-inserted into glass jars. Finally, the tuna is ripened in olive oil for at least three months before sale, giving the tuna enough time to absorb the wonderful flavors of the 100% Italian olive oil. Serve it proudly, intact as a whole loin atop a plate of greens, drizzled with a light dressing.
