Island Trollers - Albacore Tuna
Good Food Awards 2016
This unassuming can is a fantastic find and a must try. Using sashimi grade albacore, Island Trollers packs large whole chunks of meat into the can. It is cooked in the can preserving all of the nutrients and healthy oils from the fish. We enjoy it best served with the rich and flavorful juices from the can which provide additional moisture; it would go great on an appetize platter replacing smoked salmon. Or you could use this on top of a salad as the protein component. There is very little fish aroma.

These migratory surface-feeding fish are sustainably caught one fish at a time and are gently handled to ensure the best of quality.
