Mojama (Cured Tuna Loin)
The word “mojama” comes from the Arabic words “mussana” (dried meat) and “samma” (dry). Mojama is one of the favourite tapas and entreé dishes in the south of Spain.
Mojama comes from Murcia on the Costa Blanca in the south of Spain. As they have done for centuries, fishermen catch the yellowfin tuna from the shores of Greece to the African coast. In ancient times, the expression “salted fish” was a synonym for “salted tuna fish”, as it was the fish that was usually salted.
This yellowfin tuna loin from Spain is salted and air dried by Salazones Garre, who prepare salted fish following traditional recipes using the highest quality natural ingredients.
