Grilled tuna with pico de gallo and avocado

Grilled tuna with pico de gallo and avocado

Mutti Polpa is used straight from the tin to give rich texture and the taste of summer tomatoes in this pico de gallo, the perfect accompaniment to grilled tuna.

Made with Chopped tomatoes

The Mutti Chopped Tomatoes maintains all the freshness of freshly-harvested tomatoes. It’s a unique product because it is chopped especially finely for an abundance of tomato pieces in every bite and a rich, consistent texture. Mutti Polpa brings together the tomato juice and its most pulpy part, a feature which makes it ideally suited for long cooking times even at high temperatures, like in the oven. Alternatively, it captures the fresh flavour of perfectly ripe tomatoes so well that it can be used straight from the tin in dishes like bruschetta or salsas. It is also ideal for homemade pizza, for recipes with meat, vegetables and legumes and to dress fresh durum wheat pasta or egg pasta
