Many years ago I fell in love with the flavor of Italian tuna packed in olive oil, which I first found out about from an amazing tuna salad posted by my blogging friend S’Kat. Since then I’ve always had some olive-oil packed tuna in the pantry, and these Low-Carb and Keto Canned Tuna Recipes are recipes I make often when I want an easy meal that’s quick to put together.
These favorite canned tuna recipes are all things I’ve made over and over, and if you’re a canned tuna fan I bet you’re going to find some ideas here you’re really going to love; enjoy!
What canned tuna do I love?
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 if money is no object, but I was thrilled to discover Genova Tuna Packed in Olive Oil (affiliate link) distributed in the U.S. by the same company that makes Chicken of the Sea. This brand compares favorably with imported tunas and I love this this tuna so much and I’ve been buying it for so long that it’s definitely a Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks recommendation! (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.)
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 (affiliate link) from Amazon.com. 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.

Tuna Avocado Tomato Salad gets lots of flavor from lime and cilantro, or use thinly-sliced green onion if you’re not a cilantro fan.
Tuna Stuffed Avocado is a wow salad idea, and it’s really not that had to make. Use thinly sliced green onion instead of cilantro if you prefer.
Spicy Tuna Salad that has tomatoes, Peperoncini, and Parsley is another recipe documenting my love of those spicy peperoncini peppers!

Woot! amazon has this on subscribe and save… in for a case at under $35!
Barb, the last few times I have had to order it from Amazon.com.
Kaylyn are you still buying this tuna? I cannot find it anywhere here in southern AZ.
I'm eating this and some egg whites (with some light seasoning and a little lemon twist) right now. I bought mine at Costco recently and will definitely get more if they have it on my next visit. This tuna is in an entirely different class of taste than the normal supermarket brands. I'd even order what I'm eating right now before most restaurant "tuna steaks" (which are rarely fresh) that I've had in recent history.
You are so right about Genova tuna – my absolute favorite! You can also get it by the case at BuyTheCase.net. It comes out to $2.30 a can with shipping.
Carolyn, thanks. We have Target in Utah, but there’s not one anywhere close to my house so I rarely shop there.
you can also buy this at target
I use this brand all the time. It’s delicious and quite reasonable in price. I can’t eat the water packed tuna that most people buy. It’s either pulverized into bits or very dry.
thanks for the recommendation. a friend of mine who has recently gone gluten free and is soyfree bought some tuna packed in water that has soy so she asked me to keep a lookout for suitable replacement tuna and we’ll trade. I’ll definintely look for this brand. sure hope it’s gf/sf!
Annie, wow, $.99 is a great buy for this! Glad you liked it. I think I’ll go eat some right now!
Kalyn, I added this to my mental shopping list and found it on sale for 99 cents today! Picked up five cans. It’s delicious, thanks for the recommendation.
Toni, I would love to live by Little Italy. How wonderful.
Christine, isn’t it just amazing how something from a can could taste so good?
YES! I thought canned tuna was just a boring and flavorless food until I found it packed in olive oil and fell in love. I like it with just a squeeze of lemon. Rich and delicious — yum!!
Tuna seems to be popping up everywhere these days. I’m guessing it’s time to make something with it! We’ve got a great grocery store in Little Italy which I like to walk to. Now I know where my walk will take me tomorrow — thanks!
