When I found out I'd have the chance to taste test naturally delicious Ocean Naturals Premium Tuna, I immediately started thinking about some creative ways to prepare it. Providing a healthy lunch for my family, while making sure I'm not always making the same kind of thing, can sometimes be a challenge. I think I nailed it this time, though!
Tonight I put together these delicious Zesty Tuna Cucumber Bites with Ocean Naturals Skipjack Tuna, and was really impressed with how well they turned out. My kids are going to love these for lunch tomorrow!
Zesty Tuna Cucumber Bites
6 oz. can Ocean Naturals tuna, drained
1/4 c. plain yogurt
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 TB diced pimientos
1/4 tsp. oregano
pinch of salt & pepper
1 cucumber, sliced
paprika to garnish
Mix up all ingredients except the cucumber. Scoop mixture onto cucumber slices and garnish with paprika. Chill until ready to serve.
I was really surprised by the quality of this tuna when I opened it up. I immediately noticed that there seemed to be more meat and less liquid than I am used to with other brands. In addition, the tuna looked fresh---and it looked like real fish! No stringy mush in this can! Ocean Naturals packages their tuna with a dash of salt, and nothing else but water or oil, to bring you healthy freshness without fillers or additives.
Not only is Ocean Naturals tuna dolphin safe, it is also harvested using responsible methods that minimize impact to natural ecosystems. I appreciate the straightforwardness of the brand's website and their willingness to explain to us what is being put into their products.
Another thing I think is neat about this brand is that I can find out where my specific tuna came from by visiting the Ocean Naturals site and entering the code on the can. Very cool!
