Olasagasti Lomo de atún con pisto mediterráneo (Tuna Fillet with Mediterranean Ratatouille (Pisto))


Designed to be heated and served with rice, noodles, or pasta, this is a classic Pisto, which has unfortunately been translated at Mediterranean Ratatouille, which, okay, I guess it sort of is, but Pisto is its own thing and I’d rather explain what it is than compare it to something I think you already know. Many cultures have a stewed vegetable dish that is like Pisto and Ratatouille and Shakshuka, and there’s a reason: all the ingredients are being harvested at the same time, no matter where you live. Ratatouille has Herbes de Provence, Pisto does not.  Pisto can include courgette/zucchini, but typically doesn’t, where Ratatouille almost always does.

Pisto is often served with eggs (like Shakshuka) and garnished with manchego cheese. This particular recipe includes eggplant, onion, tomato, capers, black olives, and balsamic vinegar.

The container is not suitable for the microwave. We suggest emptying the contents into a microwave safe dish and heating on medium for 1-2 minutes, or  several minutes in a bain marie, or as we most often do it, in a carefully watched and slowly stirred sauce pan.

    This was a delightful tin. The tuna was firm, maybe a little dry, but still really delicious. With all the tasty veggies included in the tin, I stirred it into a homemade tomato sauce and served with pasta. Boy, was that the move! Maybe a tiny bit more expensive than I’d pay for on a regular basis, but a really great tin for a special evening. Maybe you’re making a special dinner, for a very special person. And they’re worth splurging for.

    Wow, this tin was so delicious! I didn’t have pasta so I ate warmed up over rice for breakfast and what a treat it was! I had never heard of pisto before, but this tin makes me want to find a recipe to try making it for myself. I usually don’t like eggplant, but if I wasn’t told there was eggplant in this I never would have known. Similarly to another Olasagasti tin I’ve tried, the tuna is a little dry when its by itself, but eaten with the other veggies it was perfect. This made a perfect, filling meal and was a great way to start off my day! Will order again!
