Is it possible to make canned tuna recipes healthy?

My answer to this question  is definitely a big yes! I always choose canned tuna in brine. You can’t be sure what kind of oil they put into those cans if you don’t use some special premium product. That’s why, a helpful tip when choosing canned tuna from the grocery store – always use canned tuna in brine. It is actually tuna canned in salty water. So, you add your oil and you are sure in quality you get.

I love using extra virgin olive oil with tuna. Healthy fats from extra virgin olive oil and from fish is really healthy and great for you.
