Bonito Tuna & Cherry Tomato Salad

If you like your seafood tapas then this simple and easy to knock up Bonito tuna salad is sure not to disappoint!


250g Cured Bonito tuna

250g Cherry tomatoes

1 Small red pepper

1 Handful of fresh rocket or baby spinach leaves

Extra virgin olive oil

How to Prep:

1. Cut around 250g of the bonito tuna loin using a long sharp knife (jamonero is ideal), ideally the loin should be cut into thin strips about a cm wide similar to salted anchovies.

2. In a large salad bowl place the rocket/spinach leaves

3. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and add to the bowl.

4. Slice the red pepper and add.

5. Toss the ingredients, adding a generous amount of gourmet extra virgin olive oil.

6. Place the strips of tuna over the top.

7. Serve with fresh crusty bread.

This salad is great as a starter or "racione" for perhaps 2 - 3 people.

Why not make it a seafood affair with some calamari?
