Ortiz, a Spanish family business, makes their Ventresca Tuna from live caught fish in the Atlantic. They hand cut the tuna fillets into large, meaty pieces and package them in premium olive oil for a rich snack that has an ocean-fresh flavor. Simple and delicious, this tuna is ideal for incorporating into salads or antipasto dishes. We also like the fillets served up tapas-style with our Pitted Greek Olive Mix and Marinated Sundried Tomatoes.

“There is canned tuna and then there is Ortiz conserved tuna belly! Aside from it being a perfect ingredient to enhance simple tapas and appetizers, I go for Ortiz Ventresca when I want to pull out all the stops for a to-die-for tuna melt because the taste is so satisfying, mild and meaty. I especially love it mixed with celery and just about any fresh cheese before being stuffed into pickled peppers, or in Roman-style spaghetti with tomatoes and chili flakes.
