A homemade specialty of Ortiz, the Bonito del Norte is the most prized of the tuna family, appreciated for its pure white flesh, delicate texture and superb taste. Line caught, within a 24-hour period, the fish is cooked in seawater and the loins are hand-packed in olive oil. Aged an additional year in the Ortiz cellars, family reserve has a rich tuna flavor and wonderful smooth texture. Serve as an antipasto, hors d'oeuvres, or part of Spanish tapas.
Established in 1891 by Bernardo Ortiz de Zarate of Vizcaya, Spain, the world-renowned Ortiz seafood company is today operated by the family's fifth generation of food artisans. The Ortia family upholds the traditional methods upon which the company was founded: local fishermen use pole lines to catch one-by-one the prized Bonito del Norte (Atlantic white tuna) and nets for classic Basque anchovies. Ortiz seafood is known as "Delicacies of the Cantabrian Sea" and is procured around the globe by the most discriminating chefs, patrons and specialty food shops.
