Are you a tuna lover? Are you perhaps stuck in a tuna rut? It’s easy to rely on the old standbys of tuna fish sandwiches and casseroles, but Ocean Naturals wants you to know that there is so much more that can be done with tuna and lots of healthy tuna recipes! I’m helping out by sharing my Tuna Bruschetta recipe. But first, I wanted to share a bit about Ocean Naturals and why I was happy to find it.
Ocean Naturals is Good, Good for You and Good for the Planet. It means a lot to me that they care about the way their product is made. Their tuna is responsibly-caught which means that of course it’s dophin-safe, but beyond that the tuna comes from healthy sources that harvested in ways that minimize the impact to our delicate ocean ecosystems. They are very open and label their packages with exactly what type of fish is inside. For example, their light meat tuna, which I use in the recipe below, is 100% Skipjack, unlike some cans of tuna that contain a combination of species – some of which may be more endangered than others.
They are so transparent that you can even visit OceanNaturals.com and enter the code that comes on the bottom of your can to find out who caught the fish and where it came from. I entered the code from the bottom of my can and all the information below was displayed to me. Not only is it valuable information to know, it’s also just pretty darn cool!!
Now that you know about Ocean Naturals, it’s time for me to share MY Tuna Bruschetta recipe! I like that it uses fresh, simple ingredients and is packed with nutrition. I hope you enjoy.
4 whole wheat pitas
1 Tbsp olive oil
coarse sea salt
1 can Ocean Naturals Skipjack Chunk Light Tuna
2 tsp Italian seasoning
4 vine ripened tomatoes, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
2 Tbsp red onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp olive oil
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut each pita into eight wedges. Brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, flipping once. Let cool.
In a medium bowl, combine tomato, basil, onions, garlic, olive oil and vinegar. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Refrigerate tomato mixture for at least 20 minutes to blend flavors.
In a small bowl, combine tuna with Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.
To serve, place a spoonful of tuna on each pita wedge. Top with tomato mixture. Enjoy!!
