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.

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

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.

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!

Ingredients

  • 2 (5 ounce) cans Genova Yellowfin Tuna
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (or ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs)
  • ¼ cup freshly chopped cilantro
  • ½ tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 avocado, sliced (for topping)
  • 4 whole wheat or gluten-free hamburger buns (optional)

For the slaw

  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup shredded cabbage
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • A few dashes of hot sauce, if you like it spicy

Directions

  1. Make your slaw. In a small bowl combine carrots, cabbage, cilantro, apple cider vinegar, coconut sugar, sesame oil, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Set aside to marinate for a few minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together tuna, egg, coconut flour, cilantro, ginger, garlic, turmeric, salt and pepper until well combined. Break up the tuna with a fork and mix together until well combined. Use your hand to form four even patties. If they don’t seem like they are sticking together well, place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add coconut oil to a nonstick skillet or griddle and place over medium heat. Add each patty to the skillet and cook for about 2-4 minutes, until golden brown, then carefully flip patty and cook for another 2-4 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to buns or lettuce wraps.
  4. Add avocado slices and cilantro cabbage mixture. Serve with extra hot sauce, aioli or mayo if you’d like.
