Absolutely adore the yellowfin tuna with olive oil. I can eat it straight without adding any extras, it also is extremely healthy! I never knew I could LOVE tuna, especially without mayo!

I just tried Genova tuna in oil for the first time. I have to say it is some of the freshest tasting tuna I have tried. I am hooked! #GenovaSeafood

Wow!! First time buyer, and I’ll never go back to other company. Light, flaky and moist yet flavorful. Albacore Tuna with Olive Oil is delicious. Genova is my new brand in seafood.

Hands down the best canned tuna I've ever had. Always in nice meaty chunks, and the taste is out of this world.

Love it. Best tuna that we can get in the U.S. Closest thing to the freshness of the tuna we bring back from Italy.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 Cups Water
  • 1 Cup Uncooked White rice (I like Jasmine rice)
  • 1 Cup Cucumber, grated (about 1 large cucumber)
  • 4 Sheets Nori, broken into pieces
  • 2 Cans Genova Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil, drained
  • 1/4 Cup Reduced-sodium soy sauce (GF if needed)
  • 1/2 Cup Plain, non-fat Greek yogurt (dairy-free plain yogurt works well too)
  • /4 Cup Unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 4 tsp Sriracha
  • 1 Large avocado, diced
  • Sliced green onion, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a large, high-sided pan bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, stir in the rice, cucumber, nori, and tuna. Bring back to a boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the soy sauce, reduce the heat to low, and cover and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed, about 20-25 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, rice vinegar and sriracha. Once the rice is cooked, stir the yogurt mixture into the rice until well mixed and creamy.
  4. Serve with the diced avocado, and green onion and sesame seeds.
