Spanish White Tuna Packed in Olive Oil

There's no going back to ordinary canned tuna once you've tasted this Bonito del Norte, or white tuna, from Spanish producer Ortiz. It is meaty, clean tasting and packed in olive oil to keep the flakes moist and flavorful. This 8-ounce round tin is just the right size to top two servings of Niçoise salad or to make a pair of ultimate tuna fish sandwiches. We also like to make easy appetizers of Ortiz tuna salad served on endive leaves or as a stuffing for piquillo peppers.

About the producer

For more than 100 years and through five generations, the Ortiz family has been committed to traditional, sustainable fishing and preserving techniques. For example, when, every summer, huge shoals of white tuna appear off the northern coast of Spain in the Bay of Biscay, the Conservas Ortiz fishermen line-catch every fish individually. It's a slow, labor-intensive process that helps to protect marine ecosystems. All Conservas Ortiz products, from anchovies to ventresca tuna, are carefully prepared and packed in olive oil so that, much like a fine wine, they actually improve over time.

Love this tuna. What a difference!

Unique, Rare, & Delicious Tuna!

I never thought I would be as happy eating canned tuna as I am eating fresh, but when the tuna is Ortiz Ventresca, not only am I happy, I'm ecstatic! My favorite way to serve it is with a vinaigrette made from one of your fabulous floral vinegars (or, as I discovered recently, Banyuls) combined with a grassy olive oil, served on a bed of freshly made fregola (warm, but not hot), seasoned judiciously with pink Hawaiian salt, Espelette pepper, and a squeeze of lime - I say judiciously because the tuna, with its clear, bright flavor, is the star here. Baby spinach leaves add a green note.

The Best Tuna hands down

While the price of this tuna is higher than what you can find on the average grocery it is well worth it! The taste is so pure. My teenagers who can't stand tuna even ate it! Purchase no other tuna!
