Marmitako salad with tuna nape
We close our special salad contest with Agustín’s video recipe (Elbullirdeagus): a typical summer meals such as marmitako, but converted into a very fresh salad. A quick, easy and simple recipe, ideal to enjoy this traditional Basque dish at any time of the year.
Canned White Tuna allows us to enjoy this delicious and healthy fish once the season is over. In addition, in this recipe, Agustín uses the nape, which is one of our most special preserves. The Nape is one of the most unknown parts of White Tuna, perhaps because there are very few canning manufacturers who keep this tradition intact. Together with the Belly, it is one of the most exquisite parts of our beloved “thunnus allalunga” or “white tuna” and it is at an intermediate point of juiciness and smooth texture between the loins and the Belly.
Also, use other preserves that also save time and greatly facilitate the work. We leave you the recipe so that you can prepare it at home. In addition, at the end, you can see her video.
