Tonno tuna in olive oil.


I once saw Julia Child on PBS touting the virtue of tuna packed in oil as a pantry staple. "Oil?" I thought, "how… fatty." I now see the error of my ways and slam down a can almost weekly. The quality of this fish suspended in such a flavorful medium makes it a meal unto itself. It bears no resemblance to its fishy, watery brother. No need to mess around with mayo and pickles on this one. Buy it at Sam's Deli, Piemonte's, or Trader Joe's.
