1 kg of tuna fish, 2 large onions, 1 head of garlic, 1 cup of coffee with olive oil, 1 cup of coffee with wine
white, salt, bay leaf, parsley, white peppercorns.


This is an indispensable dish in Baixo Guadiana. To begin, place the tuna in water to bleed while cutting the onion into slices and chop the garlic cloves. Some people make this dish by adding tomatoes and peppers cut into strips, but it is said that the typical recipe for the coast is made with only onions and garlic. Then cover the bottom of a tray with olive oil,
onion, sliced garlic and bay leaves and arrange the tuna morphs properly drained and seasoned with salt and pepper. Drizzle with white wine and place the pan in the oven, previously heated to 200º, for about 35 minutes. Serve with baked potato in own sauce, or set aside. Enjoy your food!
