Recipe Tuna in oil of of 01-09-2018 [Updated on 30-09-2018]

The homemade tuna in oil it is easier to make than one might imagine and obviously it is totally different from tuna in oil that we are generally used to buying. This preserve keeps all the consistency and flavor of the fish in the best possible way and, when I discovered that it was also so simple to make, I wondered why I hadn't thought of trying the tuna in oil recipe before. If this preparation had escaped you too, seize the ball (as they say) and prepare sterilized glass jars to make your tuna in oil.


How to make tuna in oil

Wash the tuna repeatedly with cold water until it loses all the blood.

Bring the water in a saucepan to a boil.
Then add the bay leaves, salt and juniper berries.

Then add it to the pot and cook it over medium heat for about 1 hour.

After this time, drain it and let it drain in a colander in a bowl for 24 hours.
Coarsely chop the tuna and place it in sterilized jars.

Now cover with oil, leaving a centimeter free from the edge of the jar.
With a knife, chop the tuna to make sure that it is completely soaked in oil.
Add a bay leaf and three juniper berries to each jar.

Close the previously sterilized jars and put your tuna in oil in a cool and dry place. Wait at least a week before consuming it.
