Ingredients: Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus Albacares), olive oil, salt.
In 1983, when canning was the main method of preservation, IASA became the first company in Italy to preserve tuna in glass jars. IASA’s visionary founder Francesco di Mauro wanted the beauty and quality of his product to be evident immediately. The visual impact of the succulent chunks of tuna masterfully hand-layered in a glass jar and swimming in olive oil made the product an instant success, later copied by many across the world.
IASA tuna fillets are born from a rigorous selection of oceanic yellowfin tuna. The tuna is sustainably caught with nets using certified dolphin-friendly practices and in accordance with strict EU fisheries rules and regulations, which are often stricter than our very own laws! At IASA in Salerno, Campania, the whole fish is slowly steamed to preserve its moist tenderness and delicate flavor. It is astounding to watch the IASA team as they skillfully clean, break down, and fillet the fish with the utmost care, entirely by hand. The artisans select the most precious, compact fillets to hand-pack into glass jars and fill them with olive oil to preserve and enhance the tuna’s texture and taste.
These beautiful tuna fillets should be the star ingredient of your dishes! Gently remove the fillets from the jar and place on top of salads, beans, vegetables, and pasta.
