The morrillo is in the upper part of the head. With a fat content of almost 30%, it is one of the most sought-after parts of tuna for its intense flavor.

It is a pure cut of meat with a fine, tender texture, very juicy and one of the cuts with the highest content of omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids.

This preserve is accompanied by red peppers and peas, one of Andalusia's most traditional versions.

The lookouts were tasked with reporting the arrival of the tuna from the lighthouses. Today this story is part of the legacy of Tarifa, its product, its region, its people...

Even the ancient Romans valued sardines and ate them salted, marinated or smoked. To this day, the sardine is and will remain a high-quality product if the quality and production methods are right.

Thanks to their short lifespan, they have absorbed very few pollutants from the sea and have a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and trace elements. 100g of sardines (about 8 fish) contain 40% of the recommended daily dose of calcium and 100% of the vitamin D necessary to absorb the trace elements. In order for the human body to be able to absorb all of these valuable nutrients, it is essential that the sardine is preserved in high-quality olive oil, because only this oil allows the human body to break it down and metabolize it.

For the sake of enjoyment, however, you should definitely not do without the many other great creations from the incomparably rich range of flavors of canned sardines: sardines in a fruity sauce, in white wine, in butter, with water and lemon... try it out!
