 Basil-Lime Tuna Salad

I don't eat a lot of canned food, but I just can't resist canned fish. High quality canned tuna, salmon, sardines, and anchovies top the list of some of my favorite foods. My ultimate favorite is olive oil-packed tuna, which is so flavorful, rich, and indulgent that it is almost like fish dessert.

I know the words "fish" and "dessert" should never really be used together, but I think olive-oil packed imported tuna is an exception.

When selecting tuna, make sure to read the label - many conventional tunas are packed in vegetable broths that contain soy or other additives.  High-quality tunas are packed only in water or olive oil, and are actually lower in mercury than conventional tunas, often higher in omega-3 fatty acids, and are often more sustainably farmed. There are many excellent, natural tunas imported from Italy, Spain, and France.  These are often absolutely crazy delicious, but are generally pretty darn pricy and are hard to find in many smaller cities. For more widely available tunas, I like tunas by American Tuna (lowest in mercury and BPA-free cans, sold at Whole Foods), Crown Prince (switching to BPA-free tuna cans this year, sold at Whole Foods, many regular grocers and co-ops), Wild Planet (BPA-free cans, high omega 3, low mercury, I've only seen it at my co-ops so far), and Natural Sea (sold at Whole Foods and many regular grocers), or for a really cheap deal when you're feeling thrifty, the tuna by Genova (sold almost everywhere) or Trader Joe's.  Crown Prince and Wild Planet also make excellent canned sardines, if you're feeling fishy...
