Skipjack tuna with pesto and capers is a quick, easy, and healthy lunch that is great to eat at home or even when you are brown bagging it. This tuna recipe is sponsored by Collective Bias and Ocean Naturals.
Ah, tuna fish. I grew up eating the standard mayo and tuna mixture on a slice of buttered rye bread. I loved it when my mom made us tuna sandwiches for lunch! Then I married a tuna fanatic. I had no idea there were different kinds of tuna until I met my husband. The tuna sandwich took on a whole different perspective.
A few years ago I started focusing on purchasing sustainable fish, including our canned tuna, but it can be really difficult to not only find wild caught fish, but also figure out where it came from. Ocean Naturals prides themselves on providing tuna that is Good, Good for You, and Good for the Planet. All of Ocean Naturals tuna is responsibly caught. In fact, you can even enter a code from each can to find out exactly where the tuna you are eating is from!
Of course, tuna is also good for you. I try to serve my family some sort of fish at least twice a week because it is full of great proteins and Omega 3 fatty acids. Ocean Naturals canned tuna is an easy and quick way to add fish to our diet.
As I learned from my husband, not all tuna tastes the same. I used Ocean Naturals Skipjack tuna to create this healthy tuna salad for lunch. I’d never had skipjack tuna before, but it worked really well in this dish. All I did was mix the strained tuna with a few tablespoons of pesto. I added a few capers for a little tang and saltiness. It was a fresh, quick, and healthy lunch. I loved it on cucumber slices!
