Starkist Gourmet Selects Tuna

Today, I am reviewing a new product by StarKist.  You know StarKist makes Tuna, but now they offer Gourmet Selects Tuna.   

What is Gourmet Selects Tuna?  It is Premium Tuna that they flavor several different ways.  I know Tuna is good for you; StarKist Tuna is 100% wild-caught, and Tuna helps you make a very quick meal, so I decided to try it.   They have seven new varieties in their Gourmet Selects line.   I received four of them to taste.  I made a delicious Greek Tuna Wrap with the Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Roasted Garlic and a Tuna Melt with the Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon Dill.  Both of these recipes were so easy and tasty!

StarKist gave me their Gourmet Selects Tuna to try; however, the opinions expressed are my own.  Using these Gourmet Selects Tuna, you can whip up a FLAVORFUL meal quickly.  This Tuna can be found at Wal-Mart and most grocery stores across the southeastern U.S.

  • Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon Dill

  • Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Roasted Garlic

  • Extra Light Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Solid Light Tuna Fillet in Water

The flavor of the Gourmet Selects Tuna varieties is really good.   When I tasted the Tuna before making the wrap, I could definitely taste the olive oil and roasted garlic.   The same went for the Olive Oil and Lemon Dill Tuna.  Most of the time when I make a tuna fish sandwich, I add lots of seasonings to give the Tuna some flavor.  I did add some Lemon pepper to the melt and some Greek seasoning to the wrap, but not like I would normally.

Since you will find olive oil and garlic in Greek food, I decided to make a Greek Wrap using the Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Roasted Garlic.  I added a bit of Greek dressing, some lettuce, sliced Cucumber, Feta Cheese, and the Tuna.  The wrap was really good!  It was fast and a very tasty.  The only thing I would change is not filling the wrap with so much food.  It was difficult for me to close it.

  1. Healthy wraps with just the right amount of kick, these make a perfect lunch. . Toss it with some chopped peanuts and throw it in a wrap for a filling, Asian-inspired lunch. Has a great taste!

  2. I’ve read where tuna carries a certain level of mercury, do you know how many ounces per week or month is safe to consume? I don’t fix a lot of tuna but I do like it in tuna salad, melts and just plain old tuna patties. This is a refreshing change by Starkist, can’t wait to try it. Bon Appetit!

      Great question! According to StarKist’s Registered Dietitian Laura Ali, M.S., R.D., L.D.N, both light meat and albacore tuna products are nutrient rich protein choices that are safe for all consumers! They are sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, lean protein, B vitamins and selenium. The guidelines regarding fish consumption exist only for pregnant/nursing women, women thinking of becoming pregnant and young children. For these individuals, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that they include 8 – 12 oz. of a variety of fish low in mercury per week– such as light meat tuna. If they want to eat white (albacore) tuna they should not eat more than 6 oz. per week. It is important to keep in mind that the health benefits of eating fish far outweigh the risks associated with trace amounts of methylmercury found in all seafood and the majority of Americans, including women who are pregnant, need to eat more seafood, including tuna.

      Thanks again for your great comment. StarKist was happy to help me give you an answer.

  3. Diane,
    Starkist definitely picked the right person to review their new product line! I have been wondering about their new tunas especially since when I’m at home during the week I will grab a can of tuna and mix with mayo, onion, salt, and pepper for my lunch. I clipped my coupon for these new tunas from the Sunday paper and was planning on trying, but was just going to put it on a bed of lettuce. Thanks for the creative suggestions!

    • Susan,

      They were really pretty good. I liked the garlic one. I really like putting the Greek seasonings with the tuna and making a wrap. I really appreciate you stopping by and supporting my blog.

      I hope you and your family are doing well.
      Blessings,

  4. Have to admit not a tuna person, but my husband is. So, I will totally share your recipes here with him and sure he will try them, especially the greek one, because he is a huge fan of greek salads and wraps, too. Thanks Diane and hoping you are having a good week so far!! 🙂

    • Janine,

      I was impressed with this Gourmet Tuna. Because it is marinated, it taste like what they marinate it in. I really appreciate you stopping by.

      I hope you family is doing better and you have a good week.

      Blessings,
      Diane Roark
