What makes Ortiz tuna unique?
What sets Ortiz tuna apart from the other brands is the premium quality. Gourmands and master chefs both prefer Ortiz canned tuna for its perfectly seasoned flavor that is never overly salty.
Unlike the gray and mushy consistency of your average canned tuna, the lovely pink flesh gently flakes apart, a quality of the Ortiz brand that comes from company’s meticulous production methods. With just the right amount of heat, this high quality, wild caught tuna is never overcooked but tastes tender and delicious with every bite.
How to use Ortiz tuna
Packed in convenient, easy-to-open cans, Ortiz Bonito Del Norte Tuna in Olive Oil makes a healthy and delicious on-the-go snack. This top quality tuna doesn’t need to be hidden in globs of mayonnaise but simply dressed with a pinch of sea salt and a few drops of lemon juice. It can be eaten alone as part of an appetizer along with slices of bread, crudités, and other picnic favorites.
Chunks of Ortiz tuna can also bring starchy pasta to life with briny pops of flavor. Spiraled pasta like Campanelle and Spiralini works best for holding onto all the chunky and thick ingredients. For a hint of tanginess, add some capers to balance the saltiness of the tuna. It all comes together with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and grated Parmesan.
A salad with Ortiz tuna is a perfect choice when you’re in the mood for a light and refreshing meal. Canned tuna also adds a healthy amount of protein to fresh lettuces, which can become a meal in itself, especially when you make it a Cobb salad with chopped prosciutto, sliced cheese, a boiled egg, and your favorite salad fixins’.
A zesty Italian style tuna casserole is another one-dish meal that can be prepared and baked with a minimum amount of effort. Made with basic ingredients that can be easily found in most kitchens, the combination of fresh spinach, large pasta shells, and seasonings make a hearty and flavorful base for the briny and delicate flavors of Ortiz tuna. Top with grated Parmesan and buon appetito!
