A view of tuna from Spain
01 June 2016 @ 11:05

       Today, I would like to show you a video, in which a fishmonger (in the market of Chamartín, in Madrid) explains us the differences between several types of tuna.

Koldo Arrastia (Reporter): “We are with Michael, my fishmonger, and we are going to talk about…, , What are we going to talk about?, about tuna”

Michael (fishmonger): “About tuna”

Koldo: “About tuna, not about rogues……”

Note: Tunos = Rogues = a group of men (usually students of University), who go to streets and bars to sing some spanish songs, like “Clavelito”, “Adios con el corazón”, “Alfonsina y el mar”, “Las Cintas de mi capa”, etc.

Koldo: “……..which is another thing: one is clavelito and the other one is parsley –as the most--. Are we clear what such is bonito and tuna?.“

Michael: “If you see it physically, they seem much”

Koldo: “Bonito: let's do this.”

Michael: “Bonito: You have here what is the "Bonito from the north", this one should be "Thunnus alalunga"….”

Koldo: “Why is it bonito from the north, because it is fishing in the north or why is it?”

Michael: “It is when it is better.... After, the animal fat is loaded, it goes to the bottom, it migrates and you can fish it in the Canary Islands, you can fish it in South Africa, you can fish it in a lot of places; but, when it is better, it is when fishing in the north.”

…………..music………………………

Michael: “Bonito, as it also has too much fat, what the animal does is that it becomes the white meat. Tuna has a very short tail and bonito has it very long. Tuna, in general, used for cans, is such this type of tuna, that we have here, which is "Albacore Thunnus", which is an "Albacora" and it is what you find in a can .... .the clear tuna.”

Koldo: “Today you have got stuck into Latin………”

……………………music…………………………

Michael: “This tuna is the "Bluefin", it is the most prized ... Star Orchard of tuna. The proportion of meat is also higher, it is not elongated, it is pudgy ... it looks like a bullet; ie, you see it, physically, and it looks like a bullet.”

……music……………..

Koldo: “When we talk about Ventresca, Talk we about tuna or talk we about bonito, or both?.”

Michael: “Both two things .......”

Michael: “Tuna is much bigger .... is an important slice, Right?”

Koldo: “It looks like a chuleton…”

Michael: “It is like a steak .... in fact, it is called "the pig of the sea: the part of the gut, it should be"”

…….music…………

Koldo: “Tuna loin!”

Michael: “Yes, sir”

Koldo: “What a look!”

Michael: “This should be the “Bluefin”. This is another variety of tuna, which is also commonly called "Patudo" (Brash), which is the "Thunnus obesus"; this animal is almost as good as that, but not so much fat; the taste is not so fine, it is not as elegant”

………music……….

Koldo: “Grab this jewel…….”

Michael: “This is a very particular thing ... ... a variety of tuna,……as you see, it has a very little short fin ... Right? ... it is called "amberjack", because the line, which runs from the head to the tail, is like lemon colour. It is a very white tuna.”

Koldo: “Does mackerel is tuna?”

Michael: “It is a tuna too.”

Koldo: “Grab a little mackerel for me”

Michael: “Somehow, they all resemble between them ...., in colours, in form ..., ie, in all ways; and then, when to eat, what happens is that mackerel should be a more vulgar tuna ...—so to speak--, it is not the same, it is not at the level of these.”

……music………………….

Koldo: “Michael: tuna, that we can have in fish store .......:….”

Michael: “Look, for example, bonito...., it is worth to make a lot of stews ....,;  you have tuna, you have clear tuna, tuna red; There is tuna, called "Brash" --which is also a type of red ....--; you have “Frigate mackerel”, which is much canned ......; mackerel, which is also much canned, can do in the oven ..., roasted.”

Koldo: “Hey: What have you told me ... ?, bonito from the North. How was the name in Latin .....?, bonito was ........”

Michael: “Alalunga, Thunnus alalunga….”

Koldo: “That is .... yes sir .... "Rosa Rosae" ...., I have seen that Latin controls ....... ......”

      Well, I hope that you have liked this video and hope that you can come to Spain, in order to enjoy a dish of tuna.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.
