Premium loins from Bonito tuna (Thunnus alalunga) line-caught in the waters of the Bay of Biscay and prepared in Basque Country. Described as “one of the great gastronomic pleasures of everyday life,” Bonito tuna is renowned for its delicate texture and flavor. For a simple pintxo flake apart the pieces with a fork and serve on crispy slices of toast with piquillo peppers, topped with a little of the olive oil from the jar (add chopped garlic, salt, and pepper to taste). Pairs well with a white wine, such as those from Rioja.
Donostia Foods Bonito del Norte Tuna was featured on The Feed Podcast (2015 James Beard award-winner for best podcast) from Chef Rick Bayless and 13-time James Beard award winner food journalist Steve Dolinsky. As Rick says while sampling the tuna, "This stuff is super special... When you hear about olive oil or butter poached fish, basically that's what we have in the jar here." Steve adds, "I could eat that plain. I don't need to have that with anything else, actually."
Our Bonito del Norte costs less than half of what you'll play for a similar product elsewhere, as we import it ourselves to reduce cost. Which is nice, as you'll get what has been described by a customer below as, simply, "the best tuna ever" for the best possible price.
