My Favorite Low-Carb Recipes with Tuna (and Genova Tuna Packed in Olive Oil)
Tuna packed in olive oil is something I love to grab when I need a quick lunch, and this post has My Favorite Low-Carb Recipes with Tuna. And the ingredient pick that I buy over and over is this Genova Tuna Packed in Olive Oil, a brand I like so much I started buying it online when my store stopped carrying it! See Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks for more featured ingredient posts like this one.
Back in 2007 I fell in love with the flavor of Italian tuna packed in olive oil, which I first found out about from a fabulous tuna salad by S’Kat. I tried olive oil-packed tuna first in White Bean Salad with Tuna and Parsley, and soon it seemed like recipes using the tuna with olive oil were popping up everywhere.
When I realized this thing with the tuna in olive oil was turning into a long term relationship, I started paying attention to the price. There are some wonderful imported Italian tunas you can buy if money is no object, but since I was trying to eat like a millionaire on a Utah teacher’s budget, I was thrilled to discover Genova Tuna Packed in Olive Oil, distributed in the U.S. by the same company that makes Chicken of the Sea.
For years I would buy this in my local store for just a little over $2.00 a can, and it compared favorably with any of the imported tunas I tried, and I loved this tuna so much that I thought it was perfect for a Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks recommendation.
Where to Buy Genova Tuna Packed in Olive Oil:
If you’re lucky you might find this amazing tuna at your favorite store. A few years ago I couldn’t find it any more it at any of the stores where I looked, so I started to buy Genova Tuna Packed in Olive Oil from Amazon.com. (affiliate link) I use this regularly, so I buy 24 cans at a time, and from Amazon it comes out to $1.64 per can which is an amazing price compared to the Italian tuna I used to buy.
This is definitely a product I’ll be buying for a long time. And for anyone who might be wondering, Chicken of the Sea has not sent me any free tuna or paid me in any way to write an endorsement of their tuna.
