Every now and then you find a food product that is so good you have to share it. And here it is – this is the most amazing tuna fish I have ever tasted- and I taste a lot of fish.
Here is the story: I was in the specialty grocery store thinking I was going to buy a can of the imported tuna fish that I love. Then I saw this can for $14 – and when you see that you think- this is just stupid. So I bought it. As I was checking out the person at the counter said, “Oh this is amazing stuff, we have people who buy this by the case.”
Opening the can when I got home I was impressed that instead of the usual “fish spam” that you see in a can of tuna fish there were real fillets of tuna. I mean – look – it is real stuff.
So the taste test – I took a small fork and had a bite — it was fresh fish, smokey flavor, meaty. Real fish -not the typical “tuna” taste. Because the smoke flavor was so forward I added some lemon and pickles, and a bit of mayonnaise and had the most amazing tuna.
The next day I went to the store and bought several more cans- and almost daily this has become lunch.
You can read more about the company from their website: http://oregonschoice.com – turns out that when I go to Oregon I pass by this place, so next time you can bet I will be stopping by.
Highly recommend this for my patients who want something they can take with them that provides a healthy lunch – this is it. Or for anyone who wants food on the go.
Try their smoked salmon – it is delicious – reminds me of Alaskan smoked salmon.
