Mojama



Mojama is a relatively unknown tapa outside Spain, very popular in Madrid where workers have their lunchtime aperitivo accompanied by thin slices of tuna.

Mojama is a salted loin of quality tuna, cured the same way as bacalao salted cod but ultimately different in flavour and texture.



Mojama is best served in wafer thin slices and goes exceptionally well with olives, olive oil, vine tomatoes or small salads.
