IASA Mediterranean Dorade in Water


Delicious and light, Mediterranean Orata is ever-present throughout the Mediterranean and known as daurade in France and dorada in Spain due to the golden color of its scales. Europeans have long prized orata for its flaky, white flesh which can be poached, grilled, or baked.

To make this delicacy, sustainably farmed orata is gently steamed, and hand-packed in cans with water, lemon, and salt. This recipe reflects the tradition of restaurants along the Amalfi coast which serve the fillets simply with salads, sliced tomatoes, potatoes, and a generous drizzle of flavorful extra virgin olive oil.

IASA is the first company in the world to produce tuna in glass jars. The company was founded in 1969 by a family originally from Cetara, a small  village on the Amalfi Coast, known for its fishing and processing of tuna, anchovies and anchovy sauce.

    A fine tasting white fish, definitley a mild, distinct flavor compared to other varieties of fish. Somewhat flaky and much like a trout packed in brine, the meat is moist, salted just enough and works as an ingredient just like tuna but not as dry. the moisture and texture are similar to pumpkin puree, pairing these or with other vegetables creates a mixture like one might find in tortellini or a pasta dish.
