Not all the people know that Sicilian red tuna
fishing is regulated by a EU disciplinary, in which only few fishermen for every nation,and only during certain short periods of the year, are allowed fish pre-determined quantities of red tuna
which are controlled and certified. In fact if you will buy our Sicilian fresh red tuna
we will attach the ICCAT certificate too.
As in these days the fishing period of red tuna has just started we are suggesting you a very simple but delicious tuna recipe
which needs and will exalt the real taste of red tuna and its extreme freshness : the tuna tartare

Then adjust with a pinch of raw sea salt and minced fresh mint an serve it with a new pouring of oil.
