Mojama - Air Dried Tuna

Mojama TunaMojama is a Spanish delicacy consisting of filleted salt-cured tuna. The word 'Mojama' comes from Arab 'Musama' meaning dry, but its origins are Phoenician, specifically from Gadir, (Cádiz nowadays) which was the first settlement founded in the Western Mediterranean Sea. The Phoenicians had learned to dry tuna in sea salt to make it appropriate for trade.

Mojama is made using the loins of the tuna, pressing them in salt for two days. Then the salt is retired, the loins are washed and then dried in the sun and air (according to the traditional method) for fifteen to twenty days.

'Mojama de Atun' or Dried Tuna Fillets is a product with a salted and mildly-sweet flavour. Mojama is 100% Natural, is a rich source of Omega-3 and is low in fat and carbohydrates. It is usually served in extremely thin slices with olive oil and pieces of tomato or almonds.

It is gaining international recognition in the restaurant and specialty food sectors around the world. Our Mojama is from the best Mojama region of Spain - Andaluscia and is consequently a favourite of our valued customers.
