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.

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

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

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!

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.

  • 2 Hass avocados
  • 1 5 ounce can Genova Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil, slightly drained
  • 1 ½ tsp Cilantro, rough chopped small
  • 8 grape tomatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbs Red onion, minced small
  • 3 Tbs sweet whole kernel corn
  • 1 tsp minced jalapeno
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp sriracha (more or less according to preference)
  • ¼ tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp cilantro paste (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper


  1. Open the can of Genova Albacore Tuna, and holding lid over the can slightly off center, drain off a little bit of the olive oil off into the sink. It does not need to be drained completely, just enough so it is not runny.
  2. Finely dice your jalapeno, tomatoes, red onions, and cilantro.
  3. Put tuna in a mixing bowl, and in the finely diced jalapenos, tomatoes, red onions, and cilantro. Add sweet corn.
  4. Add lime juice, minced garlic, cilantro paste, sriracha, and salt and pepper.
  5. Use a fork to stir it all together, breaking up any larger chunks of the Albacore Tuna.
  6. Taste, and adjust seasoning according to preference.
  7. Cut open the avocados, and remove the pit.
  8. Use a large spoon, and scoop some of the avocado out to enlarge the hole.
  9. Fill center with tuna salad mixture.
  10. Top with additional fresh jalapeno, or cilantro, or even ranch dressing!
