Ventresca is the Italian term for the belly meat of tuna ... a delicacy prized since Roman times.
 
It's the richest portion of our premium albacore ... incredibly succulent and loaded with omega-3s!
 
Our Ventresca is hand-cut from smaller, exceptionally pure and tender albacore, plus organic extra virgin olive oil and just a pinch of sea salt.
 
Each Ventresca Gift Pack provides three 3.75 oz cans with easy-open lids, arranged in a handsome gift box.
 
Vital Choice Albacore: Pure, tender, and sustainable
Our albacore tuna is selected for small size* (14 lbs or less) to ensure optimal levels of purity.
 
Unlike standard brands our tuna is cooked just once, in the can, for maximum flavor and omega-3s.
 
In addition to ample protein, albacore provides omega-3s in abundance, and substantial amounts of vitamin D.
 
All Vital Choice Albacore comes from a North Pacific fishery in which smaller boats line-catch individual tuna using the sustainable troll method. This ensures careful handling of each fish, safety for dolphins, and very minimal bycatch.

Thanks to its sustainable harvest and low mercury content, albacore from this fishery is categorized as "Super Green" by Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Vital Choice Albacore Ventresca is sustainably harvested by our neighbor Paul Hill, who quickly flash-freezes it on his small boat to preserve the fish at its peak of freshness.

*Our fishers do not target the smallest halibut, tuna or other species, but smaller fish comprise a portion of every boat's legal, sustainable catch.

Mayo-Free Tuna Salad
We like to replace mayonnaise with heart-healthy olive oil. Mayo is usually made with oils high in generally pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, which compete with the omega-3s from fish for space in your cell membranes.
 
4 sun-dried tomatoes (optional)
1/4 red onion, minced
12 ounces Albacore Tuna in water, drained
1 rib celery, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, cilantro, or parsley leaves
Salt and pepper (or organic lemon-pepper mix)
  • Cover the sun-dried tomatoes with hot water in a bowl. Set aside until soft, about 20 minutes, then drain, chop, and put in a medium bowl.
  • To mellow the minced onion, soak it in cold water for 10 minutes, then drain it well, pat dry and add to the tomatoes.
  • Add the tuna, breaking it into large chunks, along with the celery and toss to combine. Add the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, and basil and toss again.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve on whole grain bread or mixed greens.
Storage
Keep canned fish in a cool place. Consume by the date stamped on each can.
 
Serving Tips
The classics – tuna salad in sandwiches or salads – remain the best ideas.
