'Bonito del Norte' Tuna with a Piquillo Pepper by Serrats
  • Premiun line-caught Bonito del Norte tuna in olive oil
  • Topped with a delicious whole piquillo pepper
  • A lovely combination of flavors!

'Bonito del Norte' Tuna is line-caught and packed by hand. The packers at Serrats include a whole Piquillo pepper, (a sweet and tangy fire-roasted pepper unique to Spain) and then top off each jar with olive oil, to keep the dense white bonito moist and mild. It is a perfect marriage of tastes.

Select Serrats Bonito del Norte is among the finest in the country. Spaniards consider this fish the finest of the tuna family. The Serrats fishermen catch the bonito by individual line, never by net where it could languish, along with turtles and other sea life. The bonito is brought aboard and immediately dressed, thus preserving its remarkably firm texture and fresh flavor.

Set aside your preconceptions about canned tuna – this is in a league by itself. Perfect flavor, very solid meat – almost like a steak, and so fresh and moist due to the olive oil in which it is packed.

Every time you open a jar to prepare tapas, a tuna salad, a sandwich or creamed tuna for the family you will be reminded once more how extraordinarily sweet and light line-caught bonito is -- a far cry from the water packed tuna you get at the supermarket.

When you taste this silky smooth tuna, any other will be a disappointment.


White tuna, olive oil-composed of refined olive oil and virgin olive oil, piquillo peppers, salt.

    "This was lovely. The pepper was tiny and its addition added little change in flavor to the tuna in olive oil. This brand preferred over Ortiz. The sustainable fishing methods are appreciated. Overall though not something I find worth the expense."
