Albacore Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Wild Planet Albacore Tuna:
When it comes to tuna, most people generally think of that lunchtime staple, the tuna/mayo sandwich; the nostalgic, favorite lunchbox tuna sandwich that mom used to make. However, Wild Planet is different – think gourmet; think upscale; think up a notch. It is an ultra premium tuna in extra virgin Spanish olive oil. Add a bed of lettuce, perhaps some black olives and freshly ground pepper, and you’ve got yourself a lovely meal. We enjoyed this tuna in a Salad Nicoise recipe; and also as a topping for our freshly picked sliced garden tomatoes. We encourage our readers to try some of the healthful and delicious Wild Planet recipes—we did! We recommend the Salade Nicoise and the Rigatoni with Wild Planet Albacore Tuna, Lemon and Olives. Find the recipes on the Wild Planet recipe page.
Wild Planet Wild Salmon:
"Alaska Salmon is included on Monterey Bay Aquarium’s new Super Green List, meaning it is not only classified as a Seafood Watch® ‘Best Choice,’ but also meets the daily minimum requirement for Omega 3,”says Wild Planet Foods," says CEO Terry Hunt.
We tried the Wild Planet Savory Salmon Cakes – so delicious.
The tuna, salmon (and sardines which we did not yet sample) are Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Certified, OU Kosher Parve, and naturally nutritious, rich in Omega 3 and a great source of lean protein.
