As do Mar
Tuna Fillet in Water
Off the Southwest Coast of Europe lie the tiny Azores, a small chain of Portuguese islands that are right in the middle of prime Atlantic tuna grounds. A's Do Mar tuna is line caught, and then processed while still fresh. Solid light chunks of the Yellowfin Tuna (Thunnus albacares) or Big Eye Tuna (Thunnus Obesus) are packed in olive oil, which causes them to develop a greater nuance of flavor as they age in the can. Voted one of Saveur Magazine's top 100 items for 1998, it is meaty and flavorful.
