In Ortiz’s search for excellence, this traditional Bonito del Norte
is aged an additional year in their cellars before shipping to
market. The smoothness and flavor of Bonito del Norte in extra
virgin olive oil improves over a period of months, meaning that
tuna that has matured for a year is better tasting than one that
hasn’t. Put a few tins away in the pantry. Toss this tuna with a
mix of olives, cherry tomatoes and celery dressed and a splash
of sherry vinegar for a proper tuna salad.
