|Canned tuna doesn´t get much better than this!!!!|
Tuna packed in olive oil is generally made with yellowfin tuna instead of albacore, and they're filleted and canned by hand, resulting in larger, appealing chunks. Many olive-oil-packed tunas come in jars, but cans are available too, and cans tend to be less expensive.
“Ventresca de atum (o-toro)” is a special class of tuna, cut from the prized belly meat (what the Japanese call toro) of yellowfin or bluefin tuna.Jars or cans of this tuna, packed in olive oil, can be quite expensive, but the buttery, silky texture and rich complex flavour make it the "caviar" of canned tunas
