  • Dolphin safe

Our light, fresh, flavorful pouched North Pacific Albacore Tuna is a wonderfully convenient source of essential nutrition.

It comes from a certified-sustainable, dolphin-safe fishery. And we select only smaller fish — 15 lbs. or under — to ensure optimal purity.

Unlike most brands, our fish is cooked only once to preserve its fresh flavor, firm texture, and high levels of omega-3s and vitamin D.

Mayo-Free Tuna Salad

We like to replace mayonnaise with heart-healthy olive oil. Mayo is usually made with oils high in generally pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, which compete with the omega-3s in fish for space in your cell membranes.

4 sun-dried tomatoes (optional)

1/4 red onion, minced

12 ounces (4 pouches) Albacore Tuna, drained

1 rib celery, chopped

2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, cilantro, or parsley leaves

Sea salt and organic lemon-pepper mix

  • Cover the sun-dried tomatoes with hot water in a bowl.
  • Set aside until soft, about 20 minutes, then drain, chop, and put in a medium bowl.
  • To mellow the minced onion, soak it in cold water for 10 minutes, then drain it well, pat dry and add to the tomatoes.
  • Add the tuna, breaking it into large chunks, along with the celery and toss to combine.
  • Add the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, and basil and toss again. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  • Serve on whole grain bread or mixed greens.

Storage

Keep in a cool, dark place. Consume before the Best By date stamped on each pouch.
