As long as tuna boats have plied the seas, ventresca, the belly of the tuna, has been highly prized by connoisseurs as the tastiest and most tender part of the entire tuna. The Japanese treasure it under the name 'toro,' which is the most sought after part of the tuna.

Each bite of ventresca tuna is so meltingly tender that it is in a different category from other canned tuna. Serve on a fresh green salad, or on a piece of fresh bread to experience the buttery, mild flavor of this amazing seafood.

Our ventresca is prepared in limited quantities. After each Bonito del Norte tuna is cooked in sea water, the delicate ventresca fillets are placed in a tin, always by hand, because no machine process would be capable of leaving intact such a tender cut. The ventresca is then covered in olive oil, thereby keeping it moist and enhancing its delicate flavor.

Ventresca is the finest part of the Bonito del Norte tuna - a special type of albacore. Each tuna is caught with a rod and line. This preserves the texture and flavor that can be damaged by the stress of harvesting by net. This method also assures that other creatures of the sea, such as dolphin or turtles, are not harmed.

Ingredients

White tuna, olive oil and salt.
