Ramón Peña selects the best Bonito del Norte at the morning auctions during the height of the season when they are fat and flavorful. These small albacore tunas are line-caught by hand, which preserves the flavor and texture of the tuna. They are poached in sea water and packed by hand, topped with olive oil to preserve the subtle flavor and silky texture. Meticulous care is taken to ensure that the fish is perfectly cooked and packaged to deliver the finest in canned tuna.
About Ramón Peña:
Surrounded by the cool, clean waters of the Atlantic and the Old World spirit of Spain’s Iberian Peninsula, there is no better place than Galicia for Ramón Peña to have mastered his technique.
He insists on being the first to the morning fish auctions, purchasing only the absolute best of each day’s catch. After cooking in fresh seawater, each offering is hand-packed into tins one tasty morsel at a time. Only small producers like Peña, who use time-tested artisan techniques, are able to capture the intrinsic flavors and preserve the incomparable texture of pristine seafood.
There are so many ways to enjoy tinned seafood, but we like it best right out of the can with freshly baked bread and a glass of un-oaked white wine.
