Ventresca | Bonito del Norte


Artisanal tinned tuna from the Basque Country. Ventresca is the undercut or tuna belly: the prime cut of the fish. Olasagasti works with its tuna fresh, meaning it is more flavoursome. This ventresca is mild, delicate and melts in the mouth. The tuna is fished in an MSC-protected area of the Bay of Biscay in the summer months when it is at its peak. Albacore or white tuna caught in the Cantabrian Sea is called Bonito del Norte. The tuna belly is full of flavour so you do not need to do a lot with it to enjoy it. Try it on slices of ripe tomato and drizzle over some of the olive oil.
