Tuna fishing in Sicily was introduced by the Arabs around the year 1000 and then continued by the Spaniards. In 1800, tuna fishing and processing was the main economic driver on the island -which counted around 66 tuna factories-.
One of them is the Tonnara Castiglione in Trapani. Since 1800, here tuna is hand-worked and packed using the same mastery and steaming technique of the old days.
This product contains only selected yellow-fin tuna which has been steamed in order to keep the nutritive value and the meat intact. In the can, the finest quality olive oil and sea salt from Trapani are added to the tuna to create the perfect seasoning conditions.
It has a typical pink colour and firm in texture meat with a delicate flavour. It is ideal for a sauce for pasta or fresh into a mixed salad.
