I still hate that fishy taste.

Bonito del Norte is the very best-tasting tuna in the world! Better than fresh tuna I think. This is coming from me, someone who doesn't like fish at all. When I was little, and my father cooked fish, I started to gag and had to run out of the house, I hated that smell. I still hate that fishy taste. In a pinch, I will eat Albacore (white) tuna, but even that sometimes makes me gag (because I just am not able to stomach fish), and most of the can goes to waste, because I never want to touch it for weeks afterwards.

BUT! Bonito del Norte (not necessarily this particular brand, which I do enjoy) is the champagne of tuna - it tastes so mild, and buttery, it has its own distinct flavor, in between fish and meat. Best of all is the texture, very firm and dense.

When I was little, my family got to stay in my aunt's house in Spain, off season, when she couldn't rent it out to anyone else, and this was my favorite food: fresh baguette, and Bonito del Norte on top. A little bit goes a long way. You can spread a little mayo on the bread, and then put just a few pieces of this tuna on top, very sparingly (not like in American tuna sandwiches). It's the best. The taste is so exquisite, you can just open the can and eat it out of the can with a fork, without mayo. If you do use mayo, use very litte, as not to overpower the delicate taste.

Wikipedia states that Spaniards call Albacore tuna (white tuna) Bonito del Norte That may be so, but the Bonito del Norte that is canned in Spain tastes totally different from the Albacore tuna normally available in the supermarket in the US, even the most expensive brands.

Well, the title says it all. I grew up eating this kind of tuna and since I've been in the US (2003) I've had to bring it from home. The tuna found in grocery stores here in the US tastes very different; it almost has no taste. My wife (an American) could not understand why I insisted on home tuna until she had it. Now, there is no going back for her either. The flavor is rich and the meat is not just shreds. Enjoy...

The Bonito del Norte is unlike any canned tuna you've had before (and better!). I'm always on the lookout for a good deal on this product. I wish Amazon would add Ortiz Bonito del Norte to their Subscribe & Save list (hint, hint).

Spanish tuna is so different than what we are used to buying. The fish is in chunks, not decimated and packed in wonderful olive oil which really compliments the fish. If you've never tried it, you must, it's the most accessible and delicious gourmet food.

Try this at your own risk. You will no longer be able to ingest any other brand. I did some investigation and discovered that the people at Ortiz do a lot before they gently pluck these tasty creatures from the sea. They hire a team of thousands of deep sea divers to visit the schools of tuna and feed them all sorts of delicious foods (foie gras, flan, various fondue dishes). They also massage the fish daily in a similar manner to Kobe beef. They even provide full medical for each fish and its family (providing the fish has committed to being canned at a later date). You will taste the love in every bite.

I've been buying this tuna for five years, ever since I first tasted it. I won't eat any other.

I ordered this tuna ready to be blown away and and quite frankly I wasn't (except by the cost!). As far as canned tuna goes this is really good, but it is also really expensive. I was expecting something with perhaps a better texture than 'regular' canned, but while it is very good it's still canned tuna. At this price per pound I had higher expectations. Again, this is good canned tuna and I would rate it higher but I don't think the cost is justified. One thing to keep in mind when comparing this tuna to other store bought brands: make sure to buy canned tuna packed in olive oil. Tuna in water tends to be 'mushy' and not as 'flaky' as oil packed tuna.

I would suggest trying out the canned tuna from Fishing Vessel St. Jude. They are a Seattle based company and they test their tuna for mercury and post the results on their website. Whole Foods carries it in the Seattle area.

On the plus side, this tuna is amazing--rich, delicious, with lovely olive oil to drizzle on the salad, pasta, beans, bread, or whatever you are eating the tuna with. On the minus side, it is hard to go back. I used to think Cento and Progresso were all that canned tuna could be, and they are much more budget-friendly than Ortiz. It's a special treat.
