RED Tuna Ventresca Belly in Olive Oil - 350gr
ANTICHE TONNARE DI BUGGERRU. Ventresca (Belly) Tuna is sometimes referred to as "the foie gras of the tuna fish". It is the richest, smoothest tuna you will ever experience. Because of the high demand for belly tuna in Japan for sushi, where it is called toro, Ventresca is always in short supply. Handmade in Sardinia Island, this Ventresca from Bluefin Red tuna is hand-cut into fillets.
A tremendous leap in quality from the regular Tuna you get at the supermarket, once you taste this Gourmet Tuna you will be amazed from the explosion of flavours and taste!
One of the basic conditions guaranteeing the excellent quality of this product is the fact that only tuna caught in the Mediterranean is used, either northern bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) or red tuna caught in trap nets.
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.
Gourmet Tuna is great to include in your tuna noodle casserole recipes or antipastos. Tuna adds a delicious flavor to pasta salad when mixed with Feta cheese, or simply top Tuna with a sprinkle of capers and a squeeze of lemon juice. Mix Tuna with apples and cranberries, red onion and avocado for a nutritious salad.
We love very simple with some Spaghetti, EV Olive Oil, garlic and you can choose between parsley or Cherry Tomato.
Health Benefits of Tuna
Both canned and fresh Tuna is low in fat and high in protein. Tuna is also an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which support heart health and are known to lower the risk of heart attacks and blood clots. A diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids has also been shown to prevent or reduce dementia, depression, asthma and inflammatory disorders. Tuna is also high in Vitamin D and Selenium. Tuna is one of the few natural sources of Vitamin D, which supports healthy bones and certain types of cancer and disease. Selenium supports the body's immune system, and may help prevent heart disease and certain types of cancer.
