What I used to make this meal?

Wild Planet Skipjack Wild Tuna – no salt added

SUSTAINABLE WILD TUNA – Wild Planet’s tuna is pole and line caught in the northern part of the Pacific Ocean or off coastal New Zealand, maintaining natural populations and preserving the ecosystem.

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED WILD TUNA – Our tuna is 100% pole & line caught in the Central or Northern Pacific Ocean. Pole and line fishing helps to maintain natural fish populations and ocean habitats.

ALWAYS NON-GMO – Gluten free, Non-GMO, and Kosher, our canned tuna is a convenient and healthy snack or addition to your favorite dishes.

NO ADDED OIL, WATER OR FILLERS – We leave out the fillers so that each can of albacore tuna is filled with the fresh-from-the-sea flavor that you want.

Gotham Greens Pesto

Gotham Green Classic Pesto is made with our own Genovese Basil, extra virgin olive oil, parmigiano and coarse sea salt.

Deiss Pro Citrus Zester & Cheese Grater

COMFORTABLE TO USE & BUILT TO LAST The Grater-Zester has a razor-sharp stainless steel blade that won’t rust and a comfortable, non-slip handle. Its unique curved sides make it extremely rigid and allow you to apply more force when it’s needed.

SAVE SPACE IN THE KITCHEN Replace your bulky, unsafe, and hard-to-clean box grater or heavy electric food processor with a single Deiss Grater-Slicer. The metal grater’s teeth won’t clog up the way other graters do, so it’s a snap to clean. Just pass it under running water.
