Tuna Fillets Belly Meat in Olive Oil Manna Gourmet.
The bigeye tuna is one of the tastiest types of tuna. Adult bigeye tunas are caught with longlines in the Atlantic Ocean. In order to avoid overfishing, the catch is strongly regulated by the EU.
Ventresca is the belly meat of tuna and by far the most valuable, tender and tasty part. Only about 1% of the fish can be processed into this exquisite tuna fillet. It is a little lighter in colour and much richer in fat and therefore softer.
Prepared with a small salad of red onions, ripe tomatoes and a dash of balsamic vinegar, it makes a quick, very tasty dish, which is also found in the star cuisine.

Manna Gourmet, refinement and tradition:
The small town of Olhão on the Atlantic coast has the largest port in the Algarve. Olhão is the "gateway" to the Ria Formosa nature reserve and a busy fishing village with a unique working atmosphere. Fishing is still an important livelihood today and its importance is reflected everywhere. In the lively harbour, when the boats come back with their catches, or at the fish market full of freshly caught fish and seafood. The fishermen of Olhão are legendary and famous for their skills. The abundant presence of fresh fish and seafood in the region has made Olhão famous as the culinary capital for fresh fish in the Algarve.
The Manna Gourmet product line reflects this vitality and high quality standards. The freshly caught fish, of the best quality, has short ways here and is freshly processed daily. Experienced employees with many years of experience have been specially trained to prepare only the best fish for Manna Gourmet.
In the can this freshness is then perfectly complemented with the traditional, not less famous, olive oil of the Algarve.
An extraordinary combination for today's "modern diet", a fresh salad to go with it and a balanced meal is ready.
