The second largest producer of canned tuna in Europe, Italian fisheries are considered a big fish in the global seafood industry. Whether it’s Rio-Mare or Callipo, you can expect a premium quality product from the sea with Italian tuna. The briny and fresh flavors enhance the pink and tender meat of this popular fish. An essential ingredient for making your favorite Italian pantry food, Italian canned tuna adds a salty and savory bite to pasta dishes, a classic tuna sandwich, and much more. It also gives you the added benefit of healthy protein for a satisfying meal that everybody will love.
How to prepare Italian tuna
Canned tuna is a regular ingredient in a long list of Italian dishes with regional variations, tuna and pasta being one of the most iconic. For an easy and satisfying meal, toss together a combination of fresh tomatoes, Italian style tuna, and capers, the perfect ingredients for bringing spaghetti to life. Tuna casserole is another delicious tuna dish that is even easier to make. Simply combine all the ingredients—tuna, cheddar cheese, pasta, peas, cream of mushroom soup—in a casserole dish and bake until the top is brown and crispy. And we would be remiss not to mention another classic tuna dish; the tuna sandwich. Popular variations include the tuna melt, an open-faced sandwich topped with a generous amount of tuna and melted cheese.
