Tuna: Main Image

Best to Buy

Look for tuna that smells fresh like the ocean and has clear, bright eyes, clean red gills, and moist, shiny, tightly adhering scales.

Prep & Store

Remove packaging, rinse fish under cold water, and pat dry. Refrigerate covered with crushed ice and cling wrap for up to two days.

Tasty Tip

Avoid overcooking. Tuna is done when its flesh becomes opaque but is still moist.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Brush tuna with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and wrap in foil to bake.

Nutrition Notes

Tuna is an excellent source of selenium, niacin, and vitamin B12.
