First, the disclaimer: As I’ve said before, I’m really in a weird space about eating fish. It’s either unsustainably farmed or wild caught (with bycatch consequences), or it has too many toxins. I love fish but I hate this dilemma I’m in.
One of my favorite types of fish is tuna. Yes, the basic tuna you get from a can. I am still on the fence about this but feel pretty good about Wild Planet wild albacore tuna. Just read the label and see if you feel the same:
I also like the information they provide on the side label:
After searching for and finding a can of tuna I feel good about buying (yes, it was almost $4.00 a can, but that’s why one doesn’t eat tuna every day), I made a basic tuna salad for lunch.
All that’s in my tuna salad is onion, celery, tuna, mayonnaise, and hyssop (an herb I grow outside my front door).
First, I soak some red onion in water to take the bite out of it (and to prevent post-lunch onion breath).
Then, chop some celery….
Open your can of tuna and–with Wild Planet–be sure NOT to drain it or you’ll lose the Omega-3 oils!
Chop some hyssop (and some chive for garnish).
Mix the veggies, hyssop and tuna together in a bowl.
Add Hellmann’s mayonnaise.
