Canned tuna is one of the best proteins out there — it’s super nutritious, and requires absolutely no effort, just open the can and eat. That being said – quality is important.
If possible, we advocate for choosing brands that are sustainably sourced. Choosing a brand that says the tuna has been caught by pole and line is something I try to do. This means that the fish were caught one by one – not by using a big net that scoops up a bunch of other marine life at the same time.
I like the brand Wild Planet, Ocean Naturals, and the Whole Foods brand.
These easy lettuce wraps require pretty much that same amount of effort as opening a can of tuna, but they are loaded with flavor, thanks in part to caper berries, tiny round berries that are pickled to be salty and briny. Perfect with tuna.
