Shopping List: Fancy Tuna Fish in a Jar

I have a confession. I've switched teams, folks. No more canned tuna for Chez Gourmess. I've taken a leap of faith and happily joined the jarred tuna camp. Yes, you might spend a few more dollars on it, but the quality and taste are worth the extra $ alone. So, go find a lovely jar of tuna -- plain or with some added seasoning, and definitely packed in olive oil not water --  and put it in your cart.

Just this once -- trust me.

My new favorite -- plain or with some pizazz!

Once you get it home, here's what to do with your fancy tuna:
  • Heat crushed tomatoes, red pepper flakes, a couple TBS of butter and some olives or capers in a pan and add in the tuna. Toss with pasta and top with some grated Romano cheese. Divine!
  • Make The Best Tuna Salad Ever.
  • Add it to your cheese/charcuterie plate.
  • Make a tuna melt -- use a sharp or smoked cheddar or Gouda.
  • Add tuna to some sun-dried tomatoes, olives and a bit of balsamic glaze and toss with your favorite greens for a lovely salad.
  • Make egg salad, spread onto a sliced croissant and top with tuna and juicy slices of tomato
  • Eat it right out of the jar.
