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.

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

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.

  • 3 cans Genova Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil in Easy Open Cans, drained
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 2 green onions, chopped (white and light green parts only)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten

Lemon Dill Aioli

  • 1/3 cup avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  1. In a large bowl, combine the tuna, almond flour, mayonnaise, onions, salt, and pepper. Break the tuna up with a fork and really mash the ingredients together.
  2. Add the egg whites and mix in thoroughly. Using your hand, form the mixture into 6 even patties about ¾ inch thick. Place on a waxed paper lined tray and refrigerate 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the waffle iron to medium and spray with coconut oil spray or lightly brush with coconut or avocado oil. Place one patty in the center of the waffle iron and carefully close the lid. Let cook until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Repeat with remaining patties.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill and garlic until well combined. Dollop over tuna cakes.
