Timeless and tremendously tasty, these spiced tuna filets from Ati Manel offer a uniquely floral and equally decadent culinary experience.
They are made from pole & line caught Skipjack Tuna (the smallest species that make it to tin) by hand-carving them off the bone before sending them for a gentle steam and finally a bath in olive oil infused with aromatics, chili, and spices. They must first be tried on their own, but after you’ve done so, we’d invite you to pile the contents over a savory bed of smashed potatoes.

As much beauty as the sea had, that tuna was looking for other waters. He swam for miles like the rest. However, he followed other directions, looking for adventure. And he realized that not everything that is good is at sea. He swam, swam, continued to swim. He went to the coast to know and make himself known. He soon found, on land, a thousand and one interests. It was love at first sight. He soon realized that his life could be more. And even spicy!
