Bluefin tuna belly (Ventresca)

It is called Bluefin Tuna in PGI organic extra virgin olive oil, the product consisting of a portion of fish belly (Mediterranean bluefin tuna) steamed and worked by hand, placed in a specific glass container, closed after filling with the steering fluid. The product is stabilized by means of a sterilization heat treatment capable of irreversibly inactivating the enzymes and microorganisms that can alter the food.

Ventresca (“tuna belly”) is the noble, most precious and rich part of tuna because it is obtained only from the soft ventral bands of the fish.

The use of this delicious Tuna in the kitchen is vast: it is an excellent ingredient for countless appetizer recipes, tasty and rustic first courses, and tasty and creative second courses.

The goodness of a product is measured in what remains: nothing. The preservative oil of this product is never thrown away, and can be used to make a vegan mayonnaise, combining two parts of oil and one of soy milk, or even as a simple seasoning.
