Bonito del Norte is considered by Spaniards to be the finest of tunas. Arroyabe is a venerable company from the Basque region, famed for its firm, flavorful tuna.
Each tuna is line caught by hand, preserving the texture and flavor that can be damaged by the stress of harvesting by net. Colman Andrews, former Editor-in Chief of Saveur Magazine, writes that Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."
It is a far cry from the water-packed tuna you get at the supermarket. Warning: once you taste this silky smooth tuna, you may never buy another tin of ordinary tuna.
It is great in salads or on sandwiches, as well as a stuffing for piquillo peppers.
White tuna, olive oil and salt.

"Excellent tuna, but at these prices I am saving my money for when I can return to Spain and fill my suitcase. "

"It’s very good tuna. I’ve used it in salads and next level tuna noodle casserole. But I cannot figure out doubling the price since 2017. Yes, really. Big tuna flavor and it’s truly silky smooth. If your budget allows, go for it."
